BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say the death toll from a late night suicide attack in the country's north has risen to seven and that a 7-year-old boy was among those killed.
A bomber detonated an explosives-laden truck late Monday at the gate of a military base inside the city of Mosul. Officials initially said four people were killed and seven wounded.
However, a police officer on Tuesday put the toll at seven dead and 15 wounded.
Police also say assailants broke into a house in Mosul on Monday night, stabbing to death two men and two women, including a provincial officer's bodyguard.
Two health officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they are not authorized to release information.
