Baghdad suicide car bomber kills 11
BAGHDAD, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- A massive car bomb exploded Monday near Iraq's Interior Ministry headquarters in Baghdad, killing 11 people and injuring more than 60 others, police reported.
The ministry complex is a frequent target of insurgents, and one of its many police guard posts was chosen by the suicide bomber to detonate, the BBC said. At least eight policemen were reported among the fatalities.
The bloodshed came a day after at least 47 people were killed in a series of insurgency attacks across Iraq that wounded at least 130, CNN reported.
U.S. military officials said six U.S. soldiers were killed in Baghdad Sunday. One was killed by gunfire and two roadside bombs killed the other five.
Despite a seemingly endless flow of reports of sectarian Muslim violence, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki told CNN he did not foresee a civil war.
"In Iraq, we'll never be in civil war," he said.
He also claimed in the interview violence was abating, although the Iraqi Health Ministry reported 3,400 Iraqis were killed in July, more than double the 1,600 killed in January, CNN said.
