Police killed in suicide attacks

Five policemen have been killed in a coordinated attack involving two suicide bombers and several gunmen in the central Iraqi city of Fallujah.

One bomber detonated his explosives-laden belt at the main checkpoint outside police headquarters in the city, a former insurgency stronghold.

The second bomber blew himself up near the building gates as security forces engaged in a shootout with the gunmen, who later fled the scene. The attack also wounded nine policemen.

Fallujah is 40 miles west of Baghdad.
