Bomb kills two government officials in Iraq

A roadside bomb exploded Tuesday in northern Iraq, killing the head of the local town council and a member of the provincial council, police said.

Qader Ali, head of the Tuz Khurmatu town council, and Rasheed Khorshid, a member of Salaheddin provincial council, were killed, police in Kirkuk and Baghdad said.

Tuz Khurmatu, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) north of Baghdad, is one of the disputed areas in Iraq. Both the central government and the country's semiautonomous Kurdistan region claim the town.
