Baghdad: Suicide bombing attack kills at least 47 people
At least 47 people were killed on Wednesday in a suicide car bombing in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.
The blast went off at about 8am outside an army recruiting center in central Baghdad. The attack took place less than a mile from the Green Zone, the high-security neighborhood where the U.S.-led occupation has its headquarters.
US military sources said from the scene, that a car, loaded with 135-225 kilograms of explosives, had been driven up to the recruiting center by a single male.
On Tuesday, a suicide bomber blew up a truckload of explosives outside a police station south of Baghdad, killing up to 53 people and wounding scores. (Albawaba.com)
