A car bomb struck a bakery as people were lined up to buy bread Saturday in Baghdad, killing at least 11 people, including two children, officials said. The explosives-laden car blew up about 7:20 p.m. as people were breaking their fast during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan in the southwestern neighborhood of Amil, police and witnesses said. Hospital officials said the 11 killed included two children. Two children also were among the 18 people wounded, the officials said. The blast damaged five stores and three houses and burned five cars, according to police.
