A suspected suicide car bomb exploded at a police station in central Iraq on Wednesday, killing at least two other people and wounding 14, while U.S. troops edged closer in their hunt for Iraq's most-wanted man. A policeman in the town of Baquba, a hotbed of anti-American insurgency about 40 miles north of Baghdad, said he saw a white car race toward the police station seconds before it erupted in a powerful blast that knocked down scores of people.

"There were two civilians killed in the street and at least 14 people were injured, all of them police," said the policeman, who declined to be identified. The bomber was also killed.
