"A suicide bomber struck a Kurdish security headquarters in the first of rapid-fire attacks Wednesday through the oil-rich Iraqi city of Kirkuk that killed seven and wounded up to 80 people in the heart of a region of long-simmering ethnic tensions. Within minutes, two more bombs hit nearby, sending dark plumes of smoke into the clear winter sky and ending a six-month lull in violence in a city located 180 miles (290 kilometers) north of Baghdad that officials fear will become Iraq’s next flashpoint."
