A powerful bomb exploded Friday in an outdoor market in a majority Shi'ite part of east Baghdad, killing at least nine people and wounding 30, police said, while Sunni leaders ordered mosques closed in Basra to protest the killing of a Sunni cleric. The violence came as Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki rejected a US offer of direct talks on Iraq during the first high-level visit from Tehran since the new Iraqi government was formed last week.
