Car Bomb Kills 11 in Iraqi City
Car bomb kills 11 in Iraqi city
September 30, 2005 - 5:51PM

A car bomb exploded in a crowded market in the southern Iraqi town of Hilla, killing at least 11 people and wounding 30, police and health officials said.

The attack occurred a day after three car bombs killed 95 people in Balad, north of Baghdad, according to hospital director Kassim Aboud, as violence increased ahead of a referendum on October 15 on a new constitution for Iraq.

Insurgents are waging a campaign of suicide bombings, shootings and assassinations to try to topple Iraq's US-backed government. The constitution vote has raised sectarian tension between Iraq's Shi'ite majority and the Sunni Arab minority.

Earlier, five US soldiers were killed in one of the deadliest bombings on the US military in weeks, near Ramadi, a bastion of Sunni Arab insurgency west of Baghdad.
