71 Deaths in Baghdad


The Courier Mail reports that the death toll from the suicide bombing on Saturday has reached 71.
US command in Baghdad reported that fighting and roadside bombs has killed seven more American soldiers and two marines over two days of intense violence, bringing the month's toll to 91.

The Buffalo News reports that the car bomb tore through crowds of worshippers in the Shiite shrine city of karbala. Saturday’s Karbala bombing was the deadliest attack in Iraq since April 18, when 127 people were killed in a car bombing near the Sadriyah market in Baghdad — one of four bombings that killed a total of 183 people in the bloodiest day since a U.S.-Iraq security operation began in the capital more than 10 weeks earlier, it continues to report.
