Car bomb kills four near mosque in Baghdad
BAGHDAD, Apr 16 (Reuters) A car bomb exploded near a mosque in Baghdad today, killing four people and wounding seven, police said.
There were no further details on the attack in eastern Baghdad.
A wave of bombings against Shi'ite mosques in Baghdad has stepped up pressure on Iraqi leaders to bury their differences and form a government they hope can avert a sectarian civil war.
It was not clear if today's bombing in Baghdad occurred near a Shi'ite or Sunni mosque.
