A car bomb exploded Saturday morning outside a public market in the predominantly Shiite neighborhood of New Baghdad killing eight and wounding 21, police said. Police Lt.-Col. Hassan Chaloub said among those killed was a woman and her eight-year-old daughter. The explosion caused a large fire in the market that destroyed dozens of stalls. The attack appeared to be yet another incidence of sectarian violence against Iraq's Shiite majority. Al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a Sunni, has reportedly encouraged such attacks.
