  Iraqi car bomb kills at least six
Updated 06 July 2004, 19.31
Burning car
At least six people have been killed in a car bomb in the town of Baquba in north-eastern Iraq, reports say.

The bomber is believed to have targeted mourners at the funeral of two Iraqi officials who were shot on Sunday.

There have been a series of attacks on Iraqi officials by local fighters who opposed the US-led occupation.

The attack was the worst in the country since the US handed power to a temporary Iraqi government on 28 June. Some reports put the death toll at 13.

Baquba is about 35 miles from the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

Resistance

It is in a zone known as the "Sunni triangle" which has become well known for its resistance to US troops and the Iraqi forces trained by them.
