BAGHDAD, May 21 (UPI) — Bombings across northern Iraq Tuesday killed at least 14 people and wounded dozens more, officials said.

In Tarmiya, which is predominantly Sunni, a man detonated a suicide vest at a checkpoint, killing three soldiers and wounded seven others, CNN reported.

Five people died and 43 others were wounded when a car bomb exploded in a Shiite Turkmen neighborhood in Tuz Khurmato, police said.

In the ethnically mixed city of Kirkuk, three roadside bombs at a cattle market killed six people and wounded 25 others, officials said.

The latest attacks occurred amid an increase of Sunni-Shiite violence in Iraq during recent weeks.
