Baghdad, July 26 (IANS) At least eight people were killed and 40 wounded in bomb attacks in a town in Iraq’s province of Salahudin, a media report said.

The attack occurred in the town of Tuz-Khurmato when a booby-trapped motorcycle went off near a building, a police official told Xinhua on Saturday

A minute later, a suicide bomber blew up his explosive vest among a crowd of people who gathered on the site of the first blast, the official said.
