Baghdad - Iraqi officials say a suicide car bomb has killed four school children in Anbar province west of the capital, Baghdad.

A provincial spokesperson, Mohammed Fathi, said the bomb exploded on Monday near a primary school in the centre of the town of Hit, shortly after a police patrol passed by.

The representative says the blast also wounded six children. Hit is 140km west of Baghdad.

The bombing comes a day after the start of the new school year in Iraq.

Violence has ebbed in Iraq, but insurgents still carry out frequent attacks on civilians and security forces in an attempt to shake the trust in the Shi'ite-led government.

    No religious belief can sya this is justified! This is a culture of brainwashed zombies,perpertrating evil on innocent victims! Dont tell me its doone in the name of...! This is about as evil a human being can become! The only 17 virgins,they will find is 17 virgin demons!

      The number of virgins is 72 (not 17). The joke in America is that they will meet up with 72 Virginians the likes of Pearl Bailey, Roy Clark, Ella Fitzgerald, Sam Houston, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington.....just to name a few of the famous Americans from the State of Virginia.

    The world can say what they want to about America, but our kids seem to have a statement to say to the world. A link from the city where I was born: http://www.kansascity.com/2012/09/23/3829927/youth-find-common-ground-in-interfaith.html

    The religion of 'peace' at it again. How evil are these people!

      Religion. Wow. Amazing how u so quickly bring religion into a dispicaple crime like this. Have u been to Iraq? Have u read 1 page of the Koran? No, but ever so quick to blame religion. I guess religion was the cause of apartheid too right? The day people like u stop blaming God for the evil of man, is the day people like u will stop encouraging acts like these

    One has to wonder what type of 'god' condones this..... Using 'religion' as an excuse for murder...

    ah - another blight on humanity gone in tattered pieces to spend eternity with the devil dancing on his or her beyond useless ass - you can GUARANTEE THAT! Suicide bombers = devils playthings for eternity!
