Baghdad, 7 March (AKI) - At least 12 people died Wednesday from a pair of bomb blasts near a restaurant in northern Iraq.

A car parked in the vicinity of a restaurant in the Ninevah province city of Tal Afar exploded and another device was detonated by a suicide attacker wearing a bomb vest when a crowd of people gathered at the scene, according to news reports.

"The blasts of today turn our memories backward to the previous years of explosions, and return our minds to the violence and sectarian displacement of the people of Tal Afar then," Tal Afar mayor Aal Abbas, was cited by the AP news agency as saying.

Nobody immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
