Iraq: Car bomb kills 2 Iraqi Kurdish contractors

BAGHDAD (AP) Two private security contractors died in a car bombing in the northern city of Mosul, the U.S. military in Iraq said Monday. Local officials said the contractors were Iraqi Kurds.

Eight Iraqis were injured in the blast, which occurred Sunday when an assailant drove into the middle of a convoy and detonated explosives, the military said in a statement.

The statement said the contractors were working as bodyguards for the Kurdish Democratic Party of Massoud Barzani, leader of Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region.

Party officials said the Kurdish contractors were traveling in a convoy carrying construction materials. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media.
