At least 21 people died when a suicide car bomb attack ripped through a police headquarters, a strike one official thinks is retaliation for Osama bin Laden’s killing.

The incident occurred in the Babil province capital of Hilla, 100 kilometers or 62 miles south of Baghdad.
At least 75 people also were wounded in the attack, which occurred during a handover between the overnight and morning shifts, the Interior Ministry said.

The attack bears the hallmark of al Qaeda in Iraq, and Kadhim Majeed Toman, chairman of the Babil provincial council said, “I believe today’s attack was revenge from al Qaeda after the killing of bin Laden in Pakistan.”
The car bomb carried 150 kilograms of explosives, ministry officials said.
