A suicide bomber blew himself up after joining a line of Iraqis waiting for government checks in a mostly Shiite district of Baghdad, killing 10 people and wounding about 40 - including women and children. The attack occurred Monday as more than 70 people lined up at a bank to receive government checks to compensate for incomplete food rations. Police said the bomber - who wore an explosives belt - stepped into the line and detonated his explosives as security guards were searching people before letting them in.
