Car bombs killed 10 people in Baghdad on Thursday as violence persisted in the capital despite the US-led security crackdown. Seven people were killed and 15 were wounded when a car bomb exploded at midday near an outdoor market Baghdad's biggest Shiite district, in Sadr City, the Iraqi army general command said. The blast extensively damaged shops and stalls but caused relatively few casualties in the normally crowded area because so many shoppers had left the area to escape the 49 degree Centigrade (120 degree Fahrenheit) midday heat. Another car bomb missed an Iraqi police patrol in the Mansour district of western Baghdad but killed three bystanders and wounded a fourth, police Capt. Jamil Hussein said.
