A bomb exploded Saturday in a predominantly Shi'ite area southeast of Baghdad, killing eight people and wounding 13 others, police and hospital officials said. The blast, which occurred at 7:30 a.m. in Jisr Diyala, targeted restaurants frequented by government employees and construction workers, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information. Two police officers and two women were among the wounded, the officials said. Last Wednesday, eight people were killed and 24 were injured when a bomb struck the same area, which is about 20 kilometers (10 miles) southeast of Baghdad.
