A suicide car bomber killed at least five people Tuesday in a strike against Interior Ministry offices in central Baghdad, a day after several prominent hotels we're also hit by suicide attacks, officials said.

This week's bombings - all against prominent and heavily fortified targets - dealt yet another blow to an Iraqi government struggling to answer for security lapses that have allowed bombers to carry out a number of massive attacks in the heart of the capital since August.
