Iraq: Over 70 killed and wounded in car blast
A car bomb killed at least 22 people and injured 54 more when it went off at a Baghdad bus station on Saturday, a security official said. According to Reuters, the bomb reported in the Shi'ite district of Kadhimiya in northwestern Baghdad, where people typically gather at a major Shi'ite mosque on Saturdays, said Major-General Qassim Moussawi, spokesman for security operations in Baghdad.
The U.S. military said the explosion took place just after noon. Women and children were among those killed, police said.
