Suicide Bombers Kill at Least 27 in Southern Iraq

BAGHDAD — Suicide bombers detonated two car bombs on Tuesday outside the governor’s compound in a southern Iraqi city, killing 27 people, many of them police officers, and wounding dozens of others, according to local officials.

The governor, Salem Alwan Hussein, was “fine” following the attack in the city of Diwaniya, a local security official said. The attacks marked one of the more significant assaults in southern Iraq this year.
