Iraq woman bomber kills army recruits in Tal Afar
http://www.swissinfo.org/sen/swissinfo.html?siteSect=14...

TAL AFAR, Iraq (Reuters) - A female suicide bomber blew herself up outside an army recruitment centre in the northern Iraqi town of Tal Afar on Wednesday, killing at least seven and wounding 37, police said.

The recruitment centre, housed in a former U.S. military base, had only opened on Wednesday after a joint Iraqi-U.S. military operation which U.S. forces said had effectively rid Tal Afar of what they called "terrorists and foreign fighters".

"A suicide bomber blew herself up in front of the recruitment centre. This centre was supposed to be open today for volunteers," Iraqi General Nejam Abdullah said.

Many people were waiting at the scene to sign up to join the army, police said.
