Police on Wednesday confirmed the kidnapping of more than 40 Shi'ites along a notoriously dangerous highway just north of Baghdad, as the death toll from a suicide bombing at a wedding party rose to 23, including nine children. At least eight other people were found dead or killed in new attacks Wednesday, including one person killed in a car bomb attack on Baghdad's central market of Shurja that also wounded five, police Lt. Ali Hassan said. He said the death toll in the market attack was likely to rise.
