Car bombs explode south of Iraqi capital

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP)Two car bombs exploded south of Iraq's capital on Monday, inflicting dozens of casualties, police and witnesses said. The bloodiest attack occurred in Hilla, about 95 kilometers (60 miles) south of Baghdad, where a suicide car bomber drove into a crowd of people applying for work at a government office. Dozens of bodies could be seen laying on the ground after the blast, and half a dozen ambulances raced to the scene, ferrying casualties to a nearby hospital, witnesses said. Severed legs, hands and human flesh were scattered around the area. The huge blast damaged nearby shops and parked cars, and sent panicked people fleeing. In a separate attack in Musayyib, about 30 kilometers (20 miles) north of Hillah, a car bomb exploded at a police checkpoint, killing at least one policeman and wounding several others, police said on condition of anonymity. No other details were immediately available. Associated Press
