4 children die in car bombing
A bomb attached to the car of a government worker exploded with his family and relatives inside, killing four children in Baghdad, officials said.
The blast is the latest violence in the capital, which recently has seen isolated strikes and major car bombings, including attacks Sunday that claimed more than 30 lives.
The car belonged to Anmar Taha Ridha, who works on the maintenance crew of Iraq’s government headquarters. He and his wife were injured, but their two children — ages 6 and 8 — and two young nephews were killed, police said.
Hospital officials confirmed the death toll.
