A bomb hidden in a box carrying pigeons struck a popular animal market in central Baghdad on Friday, killing at least 14 people and wounding at least 33, officials and a witness said. The explosive device was hidden in a box when it detonated at about 10 a.m. at the Souq al-Ghazl or Spinning Market, which attracts buyers, sellers and farmers peddling birds, dogs, cats and other animals as diverse as sheep and goats. Police and hospital officials said at least 14 people were killed and 33 were wounded.
