Iraq Car Bomb Kills Child, Hurts Others

A car bomb exploded late Wednesday outside the home of a pro-American tribal leader in Ramadi, killing one child, a resident said. The explosion took place at about 9:15 p.m. near the house of Sheik Amer Ali Suleiman, according to his cousin Yasser Ali. Ali said Suleiman was not injured but at least one child was killed and other people were wounded. Suleiman is a leader of the Duleim tribe, one of the largest Sunni Muslim tribes in Iraq. Suleiman, a member of the city council, is close to the Americans, and insurgents have threatened and targeted Iraqis who work with the coalition. A U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad said he could confirm “there was an incident in Ramadi with a car bomb,” but said he he had no details. The press office of the 82nd Airborne Division, which is based in Ramadi, was not answering its telephone late Wednesday. Full Story
