BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) _ Another deadly day in Iraq, with Baghdad's
Sadr City slum bearing the brunt of it.
Police say at least 37 people were killed and 95 were wounded in
car bombings and mortar attacks in the Shiite slum.
Two car bombs exploded at a market shortly before sundown, and
were followed by four mortar rounds.
Elsewhere, police say a roadside bomb targeting a police patrol
on a busy street in a mostly Sunni area of Baghdad killed at least
six people and wounded 12. Across the city, drive-by shooters
killed three people in a car. A rocket landed near a house, killing
one occupant and injuring two others.
About 20 miles south of Baghdad, gunmen ambushed and killed a
police major as he headed to work.
