Car bomb explodes near U.S. base in Tikrit, at least three dead

TIKRIT, Iraq (AP) A car bomb exploded near the main U.S. base in the northern city of Tikrit on Saturday, a U.S. official said. At least three people were killed.

A suicide bomber appeared to be driving the car when it exploded outside the outer wall of the base, said Master Sgt. Robert Powell of the 1st Infantry Division.

The car detonated near a row of shops outside the base, Powell said. Ambulances and fire trucks rushed to the scene, he added.
