Suicide car bomb kills four south of Baghdad

BAGHDAD, Jan 8 (Reuters) - A suicide bomber detonated his car at a petrol station near an Iraqi police and army checkpoint south of Baghdad on Saturday, killing four civilians and wounding 19, police said.

They said most of those killed had been queuing at the fuel pump in the village of Mahaweel, about 80 km (50 miles) south of the capital, which was crowded amid chronic fuel shortages.

The explosion wrecked at least three cars but did not hurt any of the police or soldiers manning the checkpoint a little further down the road.
