A car bomb that went off at a police station in Tikrit, home town of Saddam Hussein, has left at least 10 people dead and 25 injured. More than a
dozen cars were also set ablaze by the blast as the driver apparantly drove into the police station car park then blew it up. According to witnesses
the bomber disguised himself as a police officer to gain access to the station.
The casualty toll was high because the blast occurred at one of the station's busiest times, as dozens of officers arrived to relieve colleagues who
had been working overnight, police said.
The attack comes as the Americans continue a big operation against insurgents in the western province of Al Anbar.
The US military says its aircraft have dropped two large bombs on what it called insurgent fighting positions.

It seems the madness goes on and on. Although Tikrit has been relatively quiet when it comes to terrorist attacks I'd be surprised if there
weren't more bloodshed as a result of this. Yet another cowardly act really...
