Two explosions rock Iraqi capital, killing eight Iraqis
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 07 - 10 - 2004


Two car bombs shook the capital in
quick succession on Sunday morning, killing at least eight
Iraqis and wounding 16, police said. One American soldier
was also injured.
A minibus packed with explosives detonated near a downtown
police academy, killing seven people plus the suicide
attacker, Police Cap. Ali Ayez said at the scene. About 15
people were wounded.
At least four mangled bodies were strewn in the street
amid scattered shoes, papers and a handbag, Associated
Press Television News footage showed. Police collected body
parts on stretchers.
The dead included three police academy students and a
female officer, Ayez said.
U.S. forces assisted the wounded, including a police
recruit who was receiving stitches in his abdomen at the
scene.
At least eight cars were damaged and shards of glass
covered the street.
