Bombings kill 10 across nation

November 02, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A bomb attached to a bicycle killed five people in southern Iraq, and at least five others were killed in violence across the country, police said.

The bloodshed comes as Iraqi lawmakers intensify negotiations over a new election law that many hope will hasten the end of political gridlock over control of oil-rich Kirkuk.

Police said a bicycle exploded at a produce market near Hillah, 60 miles south of Baghdad, killing five. Two people were killed in bombings in the western city of Ramadi, and three died in a blast in the southern city of Karbala.
