DUBAI (Reuters) - The al Qaeda wing in Iraq said one of its fighters strapped with an explosives belt carried out the suicide attack in the northern city of Mosul that killed at least 11 Iraqis on Monday, according to an Internet statement.



"A lion in the martyrs' brigades of al Qaeda Organization for Holy War in Iraq attacked a gathering of apostates seeking to return to the apostate police force in Mosul near the hospital," the group led by Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi said in a statement carried on an Islamist Web site.

Suicide Blast Near Army Center Kills 21

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A suicide bomber killed at least 21 people and injured 27 outside an Iraqi army recruitment center in Baghdad on Tuesday in the deadliest insurgent attack since last month's historic election, the U.S. army said.



Police said the attacker's target was a truck carrying recruits into the base in a disused airport in Baghdad. The U.S. military said the bomber was believed to have been on foot.

Al Qaeda's wing in Iraq, led by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, claimed responsibility for those blasts and vowed further attacks on "apostates and their masters," an apparent reference to U.S.-led forces and the Iraqis who work with them.
