Dateline Iraq: Deadliest Attack in Weeks

Twenty eight killed in bombings, 45 killed or found dead overall in one day:

Bombers struck a pet market in central Baghdad and a police checkpoint in the northern city of Mosul on Friday, killing 28 people in two of the deadliest attacks in weeks...

Police and hospital officials said at least 15 people were killed and 56 wounded, including four policemen. Another 13 people were killed in the Mosul attack, police said...

"We fully expected al-Qaida in Iraq to try and hurt and kill people," military spokesman Maj. Brad Leighton said. "Have we diminished their capability to do that? I think we have. But they're still out there and they're still a viable enemy."

In all, at least 45 people were killed or found dead Friday across the country, according to police reports.

They included a Sunni school guard and his wife who were shot to death north of Baqouba. A parked car bomb also targeted a police patrol in Shurqat, 155 miles northwest of Baghdad, killing one officer and wounding 15 others, authorities said.
