Iraqi police in Anbar province thwarted an attack Tuesday (February 28th) involving a suicide car bomber targeting a police station in the town of al-Karma, east of Fallujah, police said.

Anbar police spokesperson Maj. Hamid Zaban told Al-Shorfa that police opened fire on the suicide bomber after he drove towards the police station's first security barrier, causing the vehicle to explode before it reached the building.

Zaban said no deaths or injuries were reported other than the attacker. He said initial inquiries about the suicide bomber indicated that he is an Arab national.
