One dead, at least 24 wounded as bombs hit buses in Iraq's Kirkuk

One person was killed and at least 24 wounded when bombs hit two crowded passenger buses in Iraq’s oil-rich city of Kirkuk on Thursday, officials said, ONA reports quoting Reuters.

The two devices exploded as the buses drove through the city center around 7 p.m. (1600 GMT), police sources told Reuters.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but Iraq’s military called the blasts an “act of terrorism”.
