BAGHDAD -- A suicide bomber in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul Thursday killed a provincial police chief investigating a blast site from a day earlier, the military said.

Police and military officers were working at the scene of a massive weapons cache explosion Wednesday that killed 15 people and injured 132 others. Thursday's bombing killed two other police officers and wounded an Iraqi soldier and a coalition soldier, CNN reported.

The U.S. military issued a statement calling the bombing a "cowardly act" by al-Qaida, which it said had "complete disregard for human life."

In Baghdad, the Interior Ministry reported a roadside bomb hit a police patrol Thursday morning, killing two officers. Three other officers and three civilians were injured by the blast, the report said.
