Rebels attack Iraqi police station in Baghdad, kill 4
Baghdad, Mar 22: Guerrillas attacked an Iraqi police station in a town near Baghdad with rocket propelled grenades and mortar bombs today (Mar 22, 2006), killing a police commander and three policemen, police said.
The dawn attack was similar to one carried out the day before on a police station and a jail in Miqdadiya, northeast of Baghdad, in which 22 people were killed.
Police named the commander as Colonel Ahmed Jabar, head of a so-called ''stability unit'' based in the heavily fortified police station in Madaen, about 40 km (25 miles) southwest of Baghdad.
Madaen, a mixed Sunni Arab and Shi'ite Muslim town, is in an area that has been dubbed the ''Triangle of Death'' because of the frequency of rebel attacks.
