At least eight people were killed by a pair of car bombs that tore through noontime shoppers in downtown Baghdad on Saturday, while a Slovak and Polish soldier were reported killed overnight by a roadside bomb south of the capital. Police and a medical worker at al-Kindi Hospital said at least 38 others were wounded in the explosion at Hafidh al-Qadhi square, a formerly bustling area along Rasheed Street on the eastern bank of the Tigris River. The bombing was one of at least three deadly attacks Saturday in the beleaguered capital, where US forces searching for a kidnapped American soldier offered a US$50,000 for information leading to his recovery.
