Female suicide bomber wounds 7 U.S. troops in Iraq

Wed Nov 28

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A female suicide bomber wearing an explosives blew herself up in a city north of Baghdad, wounding seven U.S. soldiers and five Iraqi civilians, the U.S. military said on Wednesday.

The attack occurred on Tuesday in Baquba, 65 km (40 miles) from Baghdad and capital of the ethnically and religiously mixed Diyala province.

Suicide bombings carried out by women are very rare in Iraq.

U.S. commanders have identified Diyala province as one of the most dangerous areas of Iraq after Sunni Islamist al Qaeda fighters were driven out of their former stronghold in the western province of Anbar.
