Suicide bomb in Kirkuk kills 67 and sows mistrust

A truck bomb killed 67 people Saturday in the northern Kurdish city of Kirkuk and injured more than 200 in a blast near a mosque that also leveled about 30 houses. The attack ended months of relative calm and is almost certain to inflame ethnic tensions in the province, but there was no indication that American forces would change their plans to withdraw combat forces from the city by June 30.
