Reports from northern Iraq say a roadside bomb has killed one security contractor and wounded at least two others.
Police said the bomb exploded on June 17 as a two-vehicle convoy was traveling in the oil-rich city of Kirkuk.
The victims were Iraqis working for a Turkish company providing security for a Turkish construction project.
At least four other people have died in blasts across the country.
The violence comes a day after more than 30 people were killed in two car bombs targeting Shi'ite pilgrims in the capital, Baghdad.
More than 70 people were also killed in a wave of attacks across Iraq on June 13.
