A car bomb exploded Tuesday in downtown Baghdad, killing at least eight people and wounding 20, police said. The bomb-laden parked car exploded opposite a bank in Karradah neighborhood, said police Lt. Col. Abbas Mohammed Salman. Karradah, an upscale mostly Shiite area of Baghdad, has seen increasing violence in the sectarian fighting between Shiites and Sunnis in recent months. Last Thursday, rockets and mortars rained down in Karradah, collapsing an apartment house, shattering shops and killing at least 31 people.
