Remote Detonated Bomb in Tuz

This morning, a remote detonated bomb detonated in Tuz. The explosion killed one Iraqi police officer, and injured six Iraqi civilians. I have been told that three suspects have been detained.

UPDATE: The revised count is now up to two Iraqi police dead, one Iraqi civilian dead, and 8 Iraqi civilians injured.

And exactly what are some demographics of Tuz( i.e. population, size)? How close are the town’s residents to one another? What i mean by this is it a kind of town where everyone knows everyone and outsiders have a tendency to stick out. Just trying to figure out if something like this is rather easy to coordinate and execute there. Also, do the iraqi people worry about insurgents taking action in the local school(s)? Be safe Alt.

Tuz is about 200,000 or so. Exact numbers vary depending on who you talk to. It is a primarlily Kurdish town although Arabs and Turkomen are also present in large numbers.

It is a town where everyone knows everyone in thier neighborhood of which there are about 6.

I served in this area in 05
