Bomb kills one and wounds 14 in Iraq’s Kirkuk
At least one woman was killed and 14 people including women and children were wounded late on Friday (June 8) when a bomb exploded in the ethnically-mixed Iraqi oil city of Kirkuk, the military said.
The improvised explosive device went off near a mosque in a crowded market area in the evening, a peak shopping time in the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. A second explosive device went off near a coffee shop, injuring one man, the military said.

A missile was also fired at a school but there were no casualties, a military statement said.
Tensions are high in Kirkuk, where the results of a parliamentary election in May are being disputed by the Turkmen and Arab communities after a Kurdish party appeared to have won.
