BAGHDAD — A late night car bomb that tore through a cafe in Baghdad's Sadr City neighborhood appears to have detonated prematurely, killing three suspected militants riding inside, police said Thursday.

The death toll from the blast, excluding the three suspected militants, rose to nine, according to police and medical officials, in what appears to be the latest attempt by militants to stoke a sectarian conflict by striking at a Shiite neighborhood with strong ties to militias.
