Eight Iraqi Turkmen killed when two suicide bombers blow themselves up at protest

Two suicide bombers killed at least eight Iraqi Turkmen on Tuesday when they blew themselves up at a protest by members of the ethnic minority group, police said.

The attackers walked into tents pitched by Turkmen protesters on the Baghdad - Kirkuk highway, near the town of Tuz Khurmato, 170 km (105 miles) north of the Iraqi capital. The protesters complain that the government is failing to protect them.
