RAMADI: A suicide attack targeting a political party headquarters in western Iraq has killed four people and injured seven others, including a candidate in polls set for May, officials said Sunday.

On Saturday evening “two suicide bombers disguised as soldiers entered the Al-Hal Party headquarters”, one of most prominent parties in the Sunni-majority province of Al-Anbar, a local security official told AFP on the condition of anonymity.

One of the attackers “detonated his explosive belt while political leaders held a meeting” at the campaign headquarters in the city of Hit, about 200 kilometres (125 miles) west of Baghdad, General Qassam al-Mohammadi, head of army operations in the area, told AFP.

“Three members of the security forces were killed and seven people, including candidate Zineb Abdel Hamid al-Hiti, were wounded,” he said.
