Car bomb at recruitment center kills 35

At least 35 people were killed and some 138 others were wounded Thursday morning, according to Iraq’s Health Ministry, when an apparent suicide car bomber targeted an Iraqi army recruitment center in Baghdad. Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi visited the scene of the blast. “The Iraqi people are going to prevail,” he said. “This is an escalation that we have been expecting,” Allawi said. “The government of Iraq is determined to confront the enemies.” None of the 175 would-be recruits who were queued up inside the facility’s gate was killed or injured in the attack, nor were there any U.S. or Iraqi army casualties, according to an initial assessment from Col. Mike Murray of the U.S. 1st Cavalry Division, who was at the scene. Full Story
