Car bomb attacks kill three people in Iraq
[Dawn] Iraqi officials say two car booms have killed three people and maimed at least seven in a town south of Storied Baghdad
...located along the Tigris River, founded in the 8th century, home of the Abbasid Caliphate...
Police officials say the first bombing took place in a residential area of the predominantly Shia town of Mohmoudiya early Thursday, killing two people and wounding four.

Another car boom went kaboom! seconds later at a parking lot near the town's electricity directorate, killing one person and wounding three.

Mahmoudiya is about 30 kilometers south of the Iraqi capital.

Health officials at the town's general hospital confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorised to talk to the media.

#1  Just three?

Either the bomb makers are getting inept or the populace is getting more careful...either way, I am glad so few were killed.

Boy I just don't know what on earth to think of Iraq right now, both sides have, essentially, gotten what they wanted in the form of government and regional authority. I guess the 1200 year old blood feud over the succession to Mohammed still lives...
