Four Iraq suicide attacks kill at least 66

Four suicide bombs killed at least 66 people in Iraq on Wednesday, the latest attacks in an escalating campaign of guerrilla violence that has killed nearly 400 Iraqis since a new government was unveiled two weeks ago.

In Hawija, southwest of Kirkuk in northern Iraq, a suicide bomber blasted an army recruitment center, killing at least 32 people and wounding 34, hospital sources said. In Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit, a suicide car bomber blew up his vehicle among a crowd of mainly Shi'ite migrant laborers from southern Iraq who had gathered to look for work. At least 28 people were killed and 60 wounded.

A third suicide bomber blew up his vehicle near a police station in the southern Baghdad suburb of Dora, killing at least three civilians. A suicide car bomb attack on a police patrol in the Mansour district of Baghdad killed two policemen and a civilian, officials at the Interior Ministry said.
