A car bomb exploded in an outdoor market Friday in eastern Baghdad, killing at least eight people and wounding 31, police said. The explosion occurred at 10 a.m. in the Nahda area, police Lt. Ahmed Mohammed said, a time when the market, where old furniture, household goods and appliances are sold, would have been especially busy during the start of the Islamic weekend. Sgt. Sabah Muhsin, a hospital security official, said eight people were killed and 31 had been brought to the hospital with injuries.
