Fearing new attacks, Iraqi Sunnis in Baghdad largely shunned public celebrations of the end of the holy month of Ramadan on Monday, while a car bomb in an eastern district of the capital killed at least three people. The military also reported the death of a member of the international force training Iraqi policemen in a roadside bombing in eastern Baghdad on Sunday. Four soldiers were also wounded in that attack, the military said, without giving details. The car bomb on Baghdad's Palestine street had targeted a police patrol, but it's victims, including 13 injured, were merely pedestrians, police Lt. Thair Mahmod said.
