Gunmen ambushed a bus carrying police recruits to a training centre north of the Iraqi capital on Thursday, killing nine people, police said.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

Eleven unarmed Iraqi recruits were heading from the northern city of Mosul to a training course when gunmen driving two cars blocked the way and opened fire on their mini-bus in a village just outside Taji, 20 km (12 miles) from Baghdad.

"The shooting at their car was intense... eight of them were killed immediately, plus the driver, and another two were wounded and their wounds are critical," said Captain Muqdam Ali.
