  Car bomb at Iraq police station
Updated 23 February 2004, 09.35

A suicide bombing in Iraq has killed at least six people and injured more near a police station.

It happened in the city of Kirkuk on Monday morning, and because there were no US people nearby when it happened, it was probably aimed at Iraqi police.

Police are being targeted because some Iraqi people think they are helping the US control the country.

The blast happened shortly after the US defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld visited Iraq during a surprise visit.

The blast is the fourth one since the start of 2004 to target security services in Iraq.

More than 300 officers have been killed since the new police force was created after Saddam Hussein's government was kicked out.
