A bomb tore through a minibus during morning rush hour Monday in a mainly Shi'ite area in Baghdad, killing at least nine people and wounding 24, Iraqi officials said. The bomb was attached to the minibus in the southern area of Abu Dshir, a Shiite enclave in the mainly Sunni neighborhood of Dora, police said. The explosion left a crater at the entrance of the bus station where commuters were gathered to catch rides to different parts of the city
