Blast kills 2 at Iraq’s U.N. compound
A car bomb exploded Monday morning while the vehicle was trying to approach the U.N. compound, killing at least two people and injuring 11, police and witnesses said. The fatal blast came a day after three American soldiers were killed in separate incidents.

 THE BLAST OCCURRED at the entrance to a parking lot next to the U.N. compound at the Canal Hotel, a U.N. employee said on condition of anonymity. The blast occurred about 150-200 yards from hotel, scene of a devastating car bombing last month that killed about 20 people, including the U.N.’s top envoy in Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello.
       “It appeared to have been a suicide bombing. The bomber drove up and was engaged by an Iraqi security individual just before the checkpoint” at the lot entrance, a U.S. 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment spokesman, Capt. Sean Kirley, told reporters at the scene. That policeman was killed, although it was not clear whether he was shot or died in the explosion, he said.

5. "Not a lot we can do"
If people are willing to kill themselves.

Well, tell it to Israel.

I didn't know this until I went to Juan Cole.

He seems to think it's another attempt to dissuade the UN to remain in Iraq, though it will most likely only stop humanitarian aid.

On his site, btw, he has an unlinked report of a US military guy saying that the "calm" south is not.
