    MOSUL, Iraq, June 4 (Xinhua) -- A suicide car bomber struck a convoy of sport utility vehicles (SUV) in Mosul on Thursday, killing an Iraqi civilian and wounding six others, a local police source said.

    The bomber rammed his explosive-laden car into the convoy of a foreign security firm around midday in the Dawassa neighborhood in southern Mosul, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

    It was not clear whether the convoy sustained any casualty as the U.S. troops immediately sealed off the area, preventing Iraqi police from approaching the scene, the source said.

    Mosul, some 400 kilometers north of Baghdad, is said to be one of the last strongholds of al-Qaida militants in the war-torn country.
