At least seven policemen have been killed and 14 injured after a suicide attack in eastern Iraq, officials say.
A police officer says the bomber drove his truck containing explosives into the concrete blast walls outside the police headquarters in the town of al-Salam.
The town is about 75 kilometers (47 miles) northeast of Baghdad and close to the city of Baqouba, a former al-Qaida stronghold.
A medical official confirmed the causality figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorised to talk to media.
