A suspected shoe bomber targeting a Shi'ite imam who criticized Abu Musab al-Zarqawi blew himself up inside one of Baghdad's most prominent mosques during prayers, killing 13 people and shattering a fragile calm imposed by a security crackdown in the capital. Elsewhere, a soldier in the US-led coalition was killed and two others were missing after an attack on a checkpoint, the US military said. The incident took place about 8 p.m. Friday near the town of Yusufiyah, some 12 miles southwest of Baghdad. Friday's bombing of the Buratha mosque, one of several attacks nationwide, was carried out despite a four-hour driving ban intended to prevent suicide car bombs during Friday prayers, the main religious service of the week.
