31 killed in Iraq car bombings, attacks

BAGHDAD: Two car bombs ripped through a crowded street on Thursday in front of an Interior Ministry office in central Baghdad, killing 18 people and wounding some three dozen others while 13 more people died across the country as violence continued.

Al-Qaeda in Iraq said it carried out the countrys bloodiest explosion. In a statement posted on the Internet, al-Qaeda said Thursdays bombings targeted a patrol outside the office of Interior Minister Falah al-Naqib, who is in charge of the nations police. The claim couldnt be independently verified.

Sabah Kadhim, an Interior Ministry spokesman, said he believed the attack targeted a patrol guarding a fuel tanker. No fuel tanker was damaged by the blasts. Al-Naqib was in his office at the time of the attack.

Interior Ministry official, Capt Ahmed Ismael, said the first two blasts killed 18 and wounded 36. One government worker said five garbage collectors he was supervising were among the dead.
