A car bomb exploded in a busy area of central Baghdad on Monday, killing at least three people and wounding 25, police said. The parked car exploded during morning rush hour on a major street near the Tigris River, close to Medical City, one of the capital's largest hospitals; a complex of government buildings; a bus station; and a busy traffic roundabout. The blast in the Bag al-Muadim section of the capital destroyed at least three other cars and heavily damaged shops, blowing out their windows, said police Lt. Col. Falah al-Muhammadawi. He said at least three people were killed and 25 wounded. The injured included two policemen who were directing traffic, said al-Muhammadawi.
