The death toll from a suicide truck bombing and a car bombing in the northern Iraqi town of Tal Afar has risen to 75 dead, said a hospital doctor on Wednesday.


The doctors at Tal Afar hospital confirmed that overall 75 people were killed and another 190 people were wounded in Tuesday's blasts, which occurred within minutes of each other.


The attacks were the deadliest in the mixed Shiite-Sunni town since US President George W. Bush in March 2006 held up the onetime militant stronghold as a model for coalition efforts to create a stable Iraq.
