4 chil­dren die in car bomb­ing

Los Angeles Times - - The World -

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.
