BAGHDAD, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) — All together 64 people were killed and 274 others wounded in a series of bomb attacks, including suicide car bombings, targeting Iraqi police across the country on Wednesday, a day after the U.S. military announced its troops would drop to below 50,000 ahead of the Aug. 31 deadline for them to end combat operations.

In Baghdad, up to 15 people were killed and 58 wounded when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden car into the entrance of a police station in Qahira neighborhood in north the capital, an Interior Ministry source said.
