Suicide bombers kill 7 in attack on Iraq power plant
    2017-September-4  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SUICIDE bombers dressed as members of the Iraqi security forces killed seven people and wounded 12 in an attack on a power plant north of Baghdad on Saturday, officials and survivors said.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack.

Wearing military uniforms and armed with grenades, three attackers entered the facility in Samarra, about 100 kilometers north of the capital, said General Qassem al-Tamimi, head of a police unit charged with protecting vital installations.

A police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said one of the bombers detonated his explosives belt and the two others were shot dead by security reinforcements who rushed to the scene.

He said seven people were killed and 12 wounded in the attack.

Several tanker trucks were also damaged and the remains of one of the suicide bombers lay on the ground, witnesses said.

The police official said security reinforcements evacuated the employees.

The attack comes as Iraqi Shiites mark the first day of the Eid al-Adha feast.

The jihadist Islamic State group, which frequently carries out suicide bombings in Iraq, claimed responsibility for the attack.
