    Fourteen US soldiers were killed in a helicopter crash overnight in northern Iraq, the US military has said.
    The Black Hawk helicopter, carrying 10 soldiers and four crew members, crashed after experiencing a mechanical malfunction, a US statement said.

    There were reportedly no indications of hostile fire, but the cause of the crash is still under investigation.

    Later, at least 15 people died when a suicide bomber drove a fuel tanker into a police station in Baiji, police said.

    The head of the local hospital in the oil city, 180km (110 miles) north of Baghdad, said both police and civilians were among the victims. At least 40 people were wounded.

    The police had only just moved into the building after a similar attack in June destroyed the old station and killed at least 10 people.
