Bomber hits university, kills nine

Attacks in Iraq, including a suicide bombing at a university in north Baghdad, killed at least nine people last Sunday, security and medical officials said, reports The News.

The attacks, which come as Iraq suffers a prolonged surge in bloodshed, took place less than two weeks before a parliamentary election that will be a major test for security forces. Officials gave varying accounts of the bombing of Baghdad's Imam Kadhim University.

A police colonel said a suicide attacker entered the university before detonating explosives, while another bomber and a gunman were killed by security forces. But an interior ministry official said the bombing took place at the entrance to the university, while a second bomber was shot dead. The attack killed at least three people and wounded at least nine, officials said.
