A car bomb exploded Thursday evening in the Shi'ite city of Hillah, south of Baghdad, killing at least two people, police said. The bomb went off near a crowded soft drink stand, police Capt. Muthanna Khalid said. He said it was unclear whether the car was driven by a suicide attacker. Hillah, 95 kilometers (60 miles) south of Baghdad, has frequently been targeted by suicide bombers. On February 28, a suicide car bomber killed 125 people in Hillah - the deadliest single strike since the fall of Saddam Hussein.
