37 die in Iraq twin attacks

Shortly afterward two suicide bombers, including one driving a auto rigged with explosives, blew themselves and the vehicle up at a security checkpoint nearby, Iraqi officials told AFP.

Police said the death toll could rise as several of the wounded were in a critical condition.

The attacks came as the Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi paid a visit to the province and met with the provincial government and some tribal leaders.
