A bomb targeting poor Iraqi Shiites lining up for day jobs in the Baghdad slum of Sadr City killed at least 31 people and injured more than 50 others, police said. The bomb tore through a collection of food stalls and kiosks at about 6:15 a.m., cutting down men who gather there daily hoping to be hired as laborers. The overwhelmingly Shiite area is a stronghold of the Mahdi Army militia blamed for much of the sectarian violence rocking the city.
