A bomb planted in a minibus exploded near a parking lot of the Iraqi traffic police in a market neighborhood of northeastern Baghdad on Dec. 16, killing at least 18 people and injuring 52, Ministry of Interior and police officials said. The attack, in a small market of barbershops and butchers, happened in stages, according to the police. A small blast drew people from their homes, and then the minibus exploded. The attack appeared to target an Iraqi traffic police station nearby. There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the bombing, which was in the Nahdha neighborhood. (NY Times)
