12 die in Iraq suicide attack

SUICIDE bombers struck at a Baghdad military headquarters yesterday, killing 12 people.

Baghdad has been on high alert as the US declared the official end to its combat operations last week, yet the militants still managed to hit an obvious target in the centre of the city that has been struck very recently.

On August 17, an al Qaida-linked suicide bomber blew himself up at the same east Baghdad military headquarters and killed 61 army recruits.
