Disabled bomber kills senior Iraq policeman

By Agencies

A handicapped man in a wheel chair wearing an explosives vest blew himself up inside a police building in the central Iraqi town of Samarra on Monday, killing a senior officer, security officials told AFP.

Two other officers were also killed in the attack.

Iraqi security officials said the bomber came to the building to meet Brigadier General Abdul Jabbar Saleh Rabia, the deputy commander for the security of Samarra.

A security official said he was allowed to enter the building without being searched as he was handicapped.

“The brigadier general came down from the second floor of the building to meet him. As he came close, the bomber who was in the wheel chair blew himself up and killed General Rabia,” a security official said. (AFP)
