Two bombs exploded in swift succession yesterday, killing 13 people near a crowded restaurant in northern Iraq.

The mayor of Tal Afar said a car parked outside the restaurant exploded in the early afternoon and as people rushed to the scene to help, a suicide bomber in the crowd detonated his explosives belt. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
