Nine Iraqis Killed in Baghdad Market Bombardment
Edited on Sat Apr-24-04 07:00 AM by VolcanoJen
It's early in America, but it's already shaping up to be a Bloody Saturday. And don't forget the coming Battle of Fallujah. :-(

Excerpt:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - At least nine Iraqis were killed on Saturday when rockets or mortar bombs slammed into a market in a Shi'ite suburb of Baghdad, witnesses and hospital sources said.

At least two projectiles hit the chicken market in the Ourfalli neighborhood of Sadr City, witnesses said. Abdul-Jabbar al-Zubeidi, director of a nearby hospital, said several of the 30 wounded were in critical condition.

It was not clear who had fired the weapons.

Earlier on Saturday a car bomb exploded in Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit north of Baghdad, causing several casualties.

The blast near a shopping center appeared to be a suicide attack as the car was moving at the time, the U.S. military said, adding that no U.S. troops were injured.

1. and on page 2 of the link
DISSOLVE COUNCIL"
Brahimi said he wanted the U.S.-backed Governing Council to be dissolved on June 30 and the politicians who dominate it to be excluded from the caretaker government of technocrats he thinks should see Iraq through to elections in January 2005.

In an interview with the ABC News program "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," due to be aired on Sunday, Brahimi dismissed the idea of expanding the existing 25-member council.
