Iraqi security forces inspect the scene of a roadside bomb, which exploded in northern Baghdad, Iraq, Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2010. Iraqi police say a bombing at a checkpoint near the headquarters of a Sunni foundation in north Baghdad has killed security guards.

Iraqi police hospital officials said a bombing on Wednesday near the Baghdad headquarters of a state-backed Sunni organization killed two guards.

They said the northern Baghdad blast also wounded five people, including three other guards.

The bomb exploded at a security checkpoint about 500 yards (meters) from the main gate of the offices of the Sunni Endowment, which oversees Sunni mosques, religious schools and cemeteries.

A worker at Baghdad's Al-Numan hospital confirmed the casualties.

All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
