A suicide bomber has attacked the Kurdish party office in Iraq’s disputed city of Kirkuk, killing at least 15 people.
The attack came as Iraq’s Shi’ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is locked in a feud with ethnic Kurds in the north over disputed oilfields.
The blast outside the offices of the Kurdistan Democratic Party caused widespread damage and chaos.
Another three people died and 37 more were wounded in a separate bombing outside a rival Kurdish political party office in Tuz Khurmato, 170 km north of the capital.
