Iraqi officials say a coordinated attack involving two suicide bombers and several gunmen has killed five policemen in a former al-Qaida stronghold.
The second bomber blew himself up near the building gates as security forces engaged in a shootout with the gunmen, who later fled the scene. The attack also wounded nine policemen.
A medical official confirmed the causality figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to media.
Fallujah, a former insurgent stronghold, is 65 kilometers west of Baghdad.
