Bomb in Iraqi city of Tikrit kills at least five: police

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A bomb targeting worshippers at a mosque killed at least five people and injured 30 in Tikrit, north of the capital Baghdad on Friday, local police said.

The dead from the blast, which occurred as worshippers were leaving Friday prayers in the city 150 km (95 miles) north of the Iraqi capital, included two senior police officers.

Friday's attack followed four bombs on Thursday in Ramadi in western Iraq which killed at least six people and injured 17.
