Baghdad, June 9 (IANS) At least 14 people were killed Monday in twin suicide bombings in Iraq, an official said.

The attacks occurred when a suicide bomber blew himself up while in his truck at the entrance of the office of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), led by Iraqi President Jalal Talabani in Tuz-Khurmato, some 90 km east of capital Tikrit, the official told Xinhua.

Few minutes later, a booby-trapped car went off at a crowded parking lot in the centre of the city, the source said.

The attack against the Kurdish party of PUK is the second in two days. On Sunday, bombs exploded in the party's office in Iraq's eastern province of Diyala, killing 17 people and injuring 65 others, most were PUK officials and Kurdish security members.
