Iraqi police: Bombings kill 14 people

BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraqi officials say bombings north and south of Baghdad have killed at least 14 people.

One attack involved a suicide bomber, who blew up his car near an Iraqi checkpoint in northern Iraq. A witness says the blast unleashed "a ball of fire," as panicked civilians jumped out of their cars and scrambled for shelter. At least five people were killed, including a traffic cop. Dozens of others were injured.

Elsewhere in northern Iraq, a bomb hidden in a wooden cart exploded in a commercial area in Mosul. Four people were killed and 12 wounded.

And a roadside bombing targeted an Iraqi army convoy. Five soldiers were killed.
