[RxPG] Baghdad, April 22 - Twin suicide car bombings struck a police station in southern Baghdad Sunday, killing up to 12 people and wounding 95, including dozens of policemen, an interior ministry source said.

'Our final reports put the toll at 12 people killed, including two policemen, and 95 others wounded, including 40 policemen,' the source said.

Earlier, the source put the toll at 10 people killed and wounded 75 wounded.

A suicide car bomber drove an explosive-laden car into the entrance of a police station in the Eilam neighbourhood targeting the front barriers of station, the source said.

'The first attack paved the way for another suicide bomber who rammed his car bomb into the police station building,' he said.

The double attack heavily damaged the police station building and destroyed dozens of police vehicles and civilian cars.

The attack destroyed several nearby buildings, including a car service centre.

Violence persists in Baghdad despite the presence of tens of thousands of US and Iraqi soldiers across the capital in a major security crackdown aimed at curbing insurgency and sectarian violence in the war-torn country.
