Deadliest Bombing Yet Today in Iraq
The deadliest suicide bombing to date occurred in Iraq today. More than 100 were killed and 300 were injured, many of whom are expected to die.
The pick-up truck that exploded was left at the entrance of a market in Sadriya, a low-income, predominantly Shiite area, police said. The truck was driven by a suicide bomber and packed with at least a ton of explosives, Major General Jihad al-Jabiri, director of the Interior Ministry's explosives division, told Iraqi TV.
The blast destroyed at least 10 buildings, Jabiri said, including two that were completely leveled.
Meanwhile, a new U.S. Intelligence report predicts a bleak future for Iraq:
