BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraqi security officials say a double bombing has
killed at least eight Iraqi civilians and wounded at least 28
The Monday explosions - one in a parked car and the other
planted along a road - happened in Suwayrah, 25 miles (40
kilometers) south of Baghdad.
An Iraqi Interior Ministry official said eight were killed and
28 wounded, but a police official in the nearby town of Kut said as
many as 71 were injured.
Differing casualty figures are common in the immediate aftermath
of bombings in Iraq.
Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were
not authorized to talk to the media.
Earlier Monday, officials said at least 10 people were killed in
attacks across the Iraqi capital targeting police and army
