Insurgents destroy major bridge in northern Iraq

32 minutes ago

KIRKUK, Iraq (Reuters) - Insurgents destroyed a major bridge
that connects the Iraqi capital Baghdad with the northern cities
of Kirkuk and Arbil early on Saturday, police said.

They said the insurgents used explosives to destroy the Sarha
Bridge, near the town of Tuz Khurmato on the Chinchal river,
some 150 km (100 miles) north of Baghdad. The blast severely
damaged the bridge, forcing motorists into detours and traffic

Several bridges have been targeted in Iraq, most notably the
popular Sarafiya bridge which was destroyed in April in a truck
bombing that sent large sections of the steel structure crashing
into the Tigris in central Baghdad.
