Deadly blasts in Iraq shatter curfew calm
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- A mortar round killed seven people and wounded 15 others at a busy market in a southeastern Baghdad suburb early Saturday, said an emergency police official, one day after a daytime curfew brought relative peace.

The overnight curfew had ended at 6 a.m. local time.

Five other people were killed in bombings and shootings outside Baghdad, adding to the more than 500 lives lost in the wave of sectarian violence since the February 22 bombing of the Shiite Al-Askariya Mosque in Samarra.

Two roadside bombs targeted Iraqi security forces within 15 minutes of each other. The first exploded at an Iraqi police command center in the southern Baghdad neighborhood of Dora around 8 a.m., wounding three people, including two police commandos. The other went off in southeastern Baghdad around 8:15 a.m. when a truck carrying new Iraqi government vehicles struck the device. Two people, including the truck driver, were wounded.
....
Al-Jaafari said, "The real danger for Iraq is terrorism terrorizing Iraqis, terrorizing the country's holy sites, natural resources and the political process."

Shattered "calm". After one day of "relative" peace.

4. So, they expected the insurgents to obey a curfew?
As Andy Griffith used to say, "That beats all".
