At least 11 security personnel were killed and 34 others injured in a triple suicide bombing attack in north of Baghdad, a police spokesperson said on Saturday.
Colonel Mohammed al-Jabouri, the spokesman for the Salahuddin province police force, said that three militants rammed their vehicles into a check point when the local police chief and head of the provincial security committee were visiting the site. The vehicles were heavily laden with explosives.
Both the police chief and head of the provincial security committee escaped unhurt, the Associated Press reported.
No terrorist organisation has claimed responsibility for the attack yet. However, the Islamic State group (Isis) have carried out multiple similar attacks earlier.
