A suicide car bomber killed two people and wounded seven south of Baghdad early Wednesday, police said. The attacker was apparently targeting the seven-car convoy of a prominent judge in the Hillah area, about 95 kilometers (60 miles) south of the Iraqi capital. The judge, Aqeel Adnan Witwit, was injured but survived the attack, which took place at morning rush hour about 50 meters (yards) from his home, police said. Two of Witwit's bodyguards were killed and six other people were hurt, police said.
