Colonel Roser Muller the same nationality. He directed the duty officer to send a patrol team immediately. After five minutes the duty officer dispatched a patrol team consisting of ten NATO military personnel headed by Major Ramos a German national excluding the military driver with an APC.

The team reached the scene after forty nine minutes of their departure from the station. It is only twenty five minutes way but due to heavy traffic jam and off road they need that time. As the team reached the scene, they cordon the area with red tape and called for five ambulances from the ISF headquarters through their military radio. They picked the injured persons and send them at ISF military hospital, Baghdad. They picked 93 persons including one-third women and children. At about 2020 hrs while they were coming back to their station one third ways they became attacked by some sniper.

One eye witness informed to the team that a suicide attacker blew up a bomb-filled car at a police station south of Baghdad, killing 51 people including 21 police men on the same day, as Iraqi forces braced for Al-Qaeda revenge attacks after Osama bin Laden’s death. The attack, which also wounded at least 51 policemen, was the worst in Iraq in more than a month, and pushed security chiefs to install new checkpoints, tighten access to key roads and restrict movement between provinces.

The bombing left a two meter crater and badly damaged the police station in the center of the mainly Shiite sector area in Baghdad town, in addition to several nearby houses and shops, just days after US Special Forces killed bin Laden at Attobabad in Pakistan. “The suicide bomber took advantage of the police station’s guards changing shift to attack,” said Haider al Zazour, head of the Baghdad provincial council security committee. “He managed to drive through the main gate and blew up his vehicle four meters inside the station’s perimeter.”
