Truck bomb kills 8 in Baghdad

A truck bomb killed eight people and wounded 14 in northern Baghdad on Sunday. An Iraqi police officer said the explosion occurred during rush hour in the Sunni district of Azamiyah. He says the explosive-laden small truck was parked some 200 yards away from a passport office when the bomb went off. The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. It was the first major bombing in Baghdad since last Monday, when three suicide bombers killed 32 people and wounded hundreds during a Shiite religious procession.
