Vehicle bombings in Baghdad kill 11 people

In the recently surfaced footage, recorded by a camera mounted in the bulldozer's cabin, a auto can be seen driving towards the vehicle, which uses its front bucket to push the speeding auto bomb out of the way before it explodes.

At least three security members were killed and others wounded in two suicide vehicle bomb attacks targeting a security checkpoint in the Iraqi southern province of Basra, a police source said.

Afterwards, another suicide vehicle bomb attack apparently was foiled when the security forces blew up the attacked auto bomb near another checkpoint outside the oil-hub city of Basra. Four of the dead were police officers.

Iraq's South Oil Company said there was no disruption to operations but oil police were put on maximum alert in response to the attack, officials said.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but the attack bore the hallmarks of the Islamic State group, which has claimed similar bombings in the past.

The attacks came as the Iraqi security forces backed by anti-IS global coalition are carrying out a major offensive to drive out the IS militants from their major stronghold in the western side of Mosul in northern Iraq.
