At least 30 people were killed and at least 50 injured when two suicide bombers struck the western Iraqi city of Ramadi on Wednesday, police told the German Press Agency dpa.
Qassim Mohammed, the governor of the overwhelmingly Sunni province, and Abbas al-Dulaimi, the deputy director of the Ramadi police, were among those injured when a man detonated explosives packed into his car outside the governor's office, police told dpa.
Soon after, a second man detonated explosives strapped to his body outside the government building.
There were contradictory reports as to whether Mohammed and al- Dulaimi had been killed in the blast. Police told dpa that the two, and provincial council member Saadoun Abdel-Mohsen, were being treated for injuries.
It was the bloodiest attack in the province this year.
