August 03, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Iraqi police said a vehicle bomb killed eight people and wounded 14 in northern Baghdad today.

A police officer said the explosion happened during rush hour in the Sunni district of Adhamiya. He said the explosives-laden small truck was parked about 200 yards from a passport office when the bomb went off.

The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

On Monday, three suicide bombers killed 32 people and wounded hundreds during a Shiite religious procession.
