, killed four people and maimed 13 others, a local police officer and a doctor said.
Another car boom killed two coppers and maimed three others east of Fallujah,
the City of Mosques, which might have somthing to do with why it's not called
Center of Prosperity or
a really nice place to raise your kids...
Lieutenant Colonel Abed Awda Ismail of the Fallujah police and doctor Assem al-Hamdani from Fallujah Hospital said.
Also in Fallujah, located west of Storied Baghdad, a roadside kaboom maimed four people, they said.
And in the north Iraq city of Kirkuk,
... a thick stew of Arabs, Turkmen, Kurds, and probably Antarcticans, all of them mutually hostile most of the time...
