Bomb Kills 2 at U.N. Compound in Baghdad
By STEVEN R. HURST, Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A car bomb exploded Monday outside the U.N. compound in Baghdad, killing the driver and a policeman in an apparent warning as the United Nations (news - web sites) considers whether to broaden its role in Iraq (news - web sites).

The blast occurred at the entrance to a parking lot next to the U.N. compound at the Canal Hotel, scene of a devastating car bombing last month that killed about 20 people, including the U.N.'s top envoy


Iraqi police Lt. Col. Thaer Ahmed said 11 other people, mostly policemen, were wounded. Kirley said he didn't know whether any U.S. troops were near the scene at the time, but none was wounded. He said there was no damage to U.N. buildings and that police had a few minutes warning of a possible attack. He refused to elaborate.
