A bomb hidden in a minibus exploded near the offices of anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr in eastern Baghdad on Tuesday, killing two Iraqi civilians and wounding three, police said. The minibus that just pulled to the side of the street in a market, about 400 meters (yards) from al-Sadr's offices, said witness Naim Madkour, 36, a perfume shop owner. The van had been picking up passengers, but he couldn't see if it had any inside at the time of the blast. The explosion at 11:45 a.m. in mostly Shi'ite Sadr City damaged nearby storefronts, which were closed, but there were few people in the street because the market opens in the evening.
