Baghdad, Nov 21: A car bomb today killed at least six people and wounded several others in the Iraqi city of Ramadi, a police official on the scene said.
Major Mohammed Arak said the car bomb exploded outside a courthouse being guarded by police. One of the dead was a policeman, Arak told Reuters. Another police source put the death toll at four, with 15 wounded.
Car bombs have become rare in Ramadi, the capital of western Anbar province, since Sunni Arab tribal sheikhs joined forces with the US military to secure a region that had once been the heart of the Sunni Arab insurgency in Iraq.
Ramadi lies 110 km west of Baghdad.
