BAGHDAD // Two suicide car bombers targeted police stations in the former insurgent stronghold of Fallujah killing at least 10 people and wounding dozens, Iraqi officials said. A senior police officer in Fallujah said one of the stations has been levelled. He said today's blasts were caused by explosives-laden lorries that blew up near the concrete barriers surrounding the police stations. Police and hospital officials have given the death toll and say more than 100 people have been wounded.
