Bomb explodes in Baghdad minibus, wounds seven
BAGHDAD, Apr 30 (Reuters) A bomb planted inside a minibus exploded in Baghdad's Shi'ite Sadr City neighbourhood today, wounding seven people, police sources said.
Sunni insurgents have stepped up bombings of buses in recent weeks, stirring already high sectarian passions.
A bomb inside a minibus in Sadr City earlier this week killed two people and wounded five.
Sadr City, a sprawling slum in eastern Baghdad, is a stronghold of radical Shi'ite cleric and militia leader Moqtada al-Sadr, a growing political figure in the ruling Shi'ite coalition.
