"What we think is likely, but certainly not certain, is that an individual in an Iraqi military uniform, possibly with a vest-worn explosive device, was inside the facility and detonated the facility, causing this tragedy," Brig. Gen. Carter F. Ham, the commander of U.S. forces in northern Iraq (news - web sites), said in an interview on CNN.
