A bomb exploded at offices of the main anti-government group in northern Iraq Tuesday, killing at least 22 people, the group said.

The blast ravaged a security building belonging to the Iraqi National Congress in Salahuddin, Iraq, according to the group’s radio station in London.

U.N. guards in the area said they could not confirm the bombing.

The dead include the group’s chief of security, Lt. Saif Rashid Sindi, who led INC efforts to overthrow Saddam Hussein, the statement said.

Eight of the victims were civilians from nearby houses.
