Bomber Targets Baghdad's Turkish Embassy

A suicide bomber detonated a car packed with explosives near the Turkish Embassy on Tuesday, wounding at least two people, the U.S. military said. The attack came amid widespread Iraqi anger over Turkish plans to deploy troops in the country. It was the latest in a string of bombings to shake the Iraqi capital. Two days ago, a car bomb targeted the Baghdad Hotel, home to U.S. officials and members of the Iraqi Governing Council. At least eight people including the bomber were killed. In Tuesday’s attack, the car tried to approach the embassy in the mid-afternoon and suddenly exploded, witnesses said. A concrete security barrier close to the embassy absorbed most of the blast and prevented further damage and injuries, U.S. officials said. A U.S. military spokesman said the explosion occurred about 500 yards from the embassy. Full Story
