Explosion in Mosul kills Iraqi, injured 18 others

IRBIL, Dec 13 (KUNA) -- An Iraqi citizen was killed Sunday while 18 others were injured in a booby-trapped car explosion near a police recruiting center in Mosul city, northern Iraq.
A security source told KUNA that the booby-trapped car was driven into the recruiting center by a suicide bomber before creating havoc there.
Terrorism acts and violence had increased recently in Iraq with some analysts saying that these acts were aimed at discouraging Iraqis from participating in the general elections of 2010. (end) sbr.gta KUNA 131517 Dec 09NNNN
