Iraqi police say a car bomb has exploded in the northern city of Kirkuk, killing at least 15 people and wounding dozens.
Tuesday's bombing comes as Iraqis celebrate what the government is calling National Sovereignty Day to mark the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraqi cities.
The U.S. military also says four U.S. soldiers were killed in combat in Baghdad on Monday.
The two attacks are deadly reminders of the dangers still facing Iraq as Iraqi forces assume more responsibility for their own security.
Police Brig. Gen. Sarhat Qadir says the explosives-laden car was parked near a crowded market in the ethnically tense city. He says at least 40 people were wounded in the attack.
