The official said the blast killed the son of Sheik Khalid al-Eifan, whose clan had joined the uprising against al-Qaida in Iraq in the western province of Anbar.

Police Capt. Hameed al-Jumaili said the attacker first set off a concussion bomb to draw the family into a courtyard before detonating the blast in an area south of Fallujah.
