Homicide Bomber With Truck Full of TNT, Chlorine Gas Kills 27 in Iraq - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Euro

Just more of this. Sad really. Al Qaeda is really getting desparte to kill Muslims.

FOXNews.com - Homicide Bomber With Truck Full of TNT, Chlorine Gas Kills 27 in Iraq - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News: "A homicide bomber driving a truck loaded with TNT and toxic chlorine gas crashed into a police checkpoint in western Ramadi on Friday, killing at least 27 people and wounding dozens, police in the Anbar provincial capital said.

The bombing in Anbar province marked the ninth use of chlorine bombs in the sprawling, mainly desert territory that has been a stronghold of the Sunni insurgency.

Recently, however, many Anbar tribes have switched allegiance, with large numbers of military-age men joining the police force and Iraqi army in a bid to expel al-Qaida in Iraq fighters. Suicide bombings are an Al Qaeda trademark.

Police Maj. Mohammed Mahmoud al Nattah, member of the Anbar Salvation council, told state-run Iraqiya television the bomber hit a residential complex and dozens of wounded were taken to the Ramadi hospital.

Police opened fire as the homicide car bomber sped toward a checkpoint, three miles west of the city, according to police Col. Tariq al-Dulaimi. Nearby buildings were heavily damaged and police were searching the rubble for more victims."
