Iraqi Rebels Set Trap for Police, Killing at Least 32

At least 32 Iraqis, including seven police officers, were killed late Tuesday when insurgents tricked the police into raiding a house that was booby-trapped with a powerful bomb, Iraqi officials said today. The bomb was triggered just as police charged the home in the Ghazilyah district of western Baghdad, a rough Sunni Muslim neighborhood that has been the site of clashes between gunmen and police. The explosion, which shook western Baghdad at about 10:30 Tuesday night, flattened at least three adjacent homes, killing the families inside. Throughout today, crews with large equipment scrambled to try to uncover any survivors from amid the rubble. At least 25 people were also wounded, including two Iraqi police officers, and six other buildings were also damaged, officials said.Full Story
