An al-Qaida-linked coalition of Iraqi Sunni insurgents claimed responsibility on Thursday for an attack on a convoy in Baghdad that killed an American democracy worker from Ohio. The Washington-based National Democratic Institute identified its slain staffer as Andrea Parhamovich, 28, of Perry, Ohio. Three security contractors from Hungary, Croatia and Iraq were also killed in the ambush.
