Car bomb kills 3, wounds 25 in central Baghdad
BAGHDAD, Apr 24 (Reuters) A car bomb targeting an Iraqi police patrol exploded in central Baghdad today, killing at least three people and wounding 25 others, police said.
They said the blast occurred near the Ministry of Health. There were no further details.
The attack, which followed a rocket blast that killed seven people yesterday, comes as Prime Minister-designate Jawad al- Maliki starts the daunting task of forming a national unity government that many see as the best way to avert civil war.
