Iraq Hotel Explosion Kills at Least 15

Sunday October 31, 2004 7:01 PM

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - An explosion hit a hotel Sunday in the northern Iraqi city of Tikrit killed 15 Iraqis, police and hospital officials said.

Dr. Hassan al-Juburi, director of the Tikrit Teaching Hospital, said the blast happened at 8:00 p.m. at the Sunubar Hotel, he said. Eight others were seriously wounded in the explosion, including two policemen. All the victims were Iraqi, he said.

Al-Juburi said he did not know what had caused the blast.

A police official confirmed the incident and said the explosion might have been caused by a projectile. He had no further details.

Tikrit, about 80 miles north of Baghdad, is the hometown of former leader Saddam Hussein.
