Baghdad, May 15 (EFE).- At least 10 people died and 13 others were wounded in two car-bomb attacks on government buildings Wednesday in Kirkuk, a city 250 kilometers (155 miles) north of Baghdad, an Iraqi police spokesman told Efe.

The deadlier attack was staged near the financial control department building in Al Khadra, a neighborhood in the southwestern part of the city.

The bomb killed six people, wounded eight and caused extensive damage both to the government building and nearby structures.

The second car-bomb was detonated near the sports and youth department building in the city's Tis'ayn zone, killing four people and wounding five.

Meanwhile, one police officer died and four others were wounded when a suicide bomber attacked their patrol with a motorcycle bomb in the city of Tarmiyah, 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of Baghdad.

In the city of Baqubah, 65 kilometers (40 miles) northeast of the capital, a civilian died and his son was wounded when a limpet mine exploded in their vehicle.
