Baghdad - A car bomb exploded in northeastern Baghdad on Thursday, killing at least eight people and wounding 25 more in a busy market area, Iraqi police and hospital sources said.

The blast near a restaurant in the mainly Shi'ite Shula district was the first serious attack on the Iraqi capital since mid-May when a suicide bomber hit a police checkpoint in Baghdad.

    I wonder if these people know what they are killing their country men for. They are quick to claim responsibility but you never hear any of them articulate their political positions or demands.

      Fidel - exactly I mean they started suicide bombings etc to get the americans out and now they just kill one another and the americans are long gone? Religion of peace? Actions speak louder than words in my book.
