31 die in attack on Baghdad neighborhood

By ROBERT H. REID, Associated Press Writer 36 minutes ago

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Rockets and mortars rained down Thursday on an upscale, mostly Shiite area of Baghdad, collapsing an apartment house, shattering shops and killing at least 31 people part of the rising sectarian violence
President Bush has vowed to stop.


A car bomb also exploded during the attack in the commercial-residential district of Karradah, an area that is home to several prominent Shiite politicians.

More than 150 people were wounded in the blasts, police said.

Horrified survivors milled about the street hours later, surveying the damage and blaming Sunnis from neighborhoods across the Tigris River.
