10. Dozens die in Iraqi suicide bombings
Bombs explode in Tikrit, Baghdad and the north

Staff and agencies
Wednesday May 11, 2005

At least 57 people have been killed and more than a hundred injured by a series of suicide bomb attacks across Iraq this morning.

A man with explosives hidden under his clothes set them off while standing in a line of job applicants waiting outside a police and army recruitment center in Hawija, northern Iraq, earlier this morning, killing 30 people and wounding 35. Fifteen are said to be in a critical condition.

In Tikrit, Saddam Hussein's home town, a suicide car bomb was detonated outside a police station at 0315 GMT this morning. Police said 24 people died and 70 were wounded.

At Tikrit's general hospital, Dr Faisal Mahmoud said the facility was too small to handle so many casualties.
