a another car bomb has struck Iraq,
again its a police station and weeks away from the january elections, things are looking bad
A local doctor is quoted as saying 90% of the casualties were policemen, who were queuing up to receive their salaries when the bomber struck.

Insurgents in Iraq have often attacked police and security forces to oppose post-war US plans for the country.

North and central Iraq has been hit by a wave of insurgent attacks in the wake of the US-led assault on the city of Falluja.

The US military commander in northern Iraq has told the BBC that violence in the city of Mosul was undermining efforts to hold elections on 30 January.

At least 57 Iraqi security troops have been killed in Mosul in recent days, and a string of police stations has been bombed.

Brig Gen Carter Hamm said that elections could not be held in all parts of Mosul under present conditions.

this is getting even more serious,
bombing's and attacks are increasing even so the US forces say they are getting things under control.

this also means that elections cant be held in most parts of Irag if the situation doesnt calm down
