Twin car bombs kill at least eight in Iraq

Two nearly simultaneous car bombs detonated in a Baghdad neighborhood Sunday, killing at least eight people, and officials said the death toll from a giant suicide truck blast that killed at least 115 in a Shi'ite village north of the capital a day earlier could be much higher - between 130 and 150. Sunday's twin explosions hit Baghdad's Karrada district, which has seen a relative calm for weeks amid a US security crackdown in the capital and on regions to the north and south, where al-Qaida and Sunni insurgents are believed to prepare their deadly car bombs.
