A bomb exploded Saturday in a Shiite district of Baghdad, killing nine and injuring 28 on the day Iraq's incoming prime minister was to present his Cabinet to parliament for approval, police said. The blast occurred about 6:30 a.m. near a food stand in Sadr City where men gather to wait for jobs as day laborers, police Maj. Hashim al-Yaser said. The violence occurred ahead of a planned meeting of Iraq's parliament which was to approve the new Cabinet of Prime Minister-designate Nouri al-Maliki.
