Suicide Bombers Attack Power Station Near Baghdad

Suicide bombers attacked a state-run power station north of Baghdad early on Saturday, killing seven people and forcing the facility to shut down, police and army sources said. At least three gunmen wearing explosive vests attacked the power station around 0300 local time, near the northern city of Sammara, about 100 km (60 miles) north of Baghdad. They used grenades to enter the facility, Reuters reported. “I was in my night shift and suddenly heard shooting and blasts. A few minutes later I saw one attacker wearing a military uniform and throwing grenades through the windows,” said Raied Khalid, a worker who was injured by shrapnel. Security sources said the three gunmen briefly took control of the station, but police managed to regain control after three hours. Four policemen and three workers were killed in the attack, in which 13 were wounded, police and medical sources from a nearby hospital said.
