Bomb Kills 5, Wounds 12 in Iraq

BAGHDAD (AP) - Police say at least five people have been killed
and 12 wounded in a bombing west of Baghdad. It's the second blast
in less than two weeks to strike the Abu Ghraib area.
The Interior Ministry officer says a roadside bomb exploded near
a string of car repair shops near Abu Ghraib. But a local police
officer says a car bomb exploded in a garage.
The officials gave the casualty toll on condition of anonymity
because they weren't authorized to release the information.
The mainly Sunni area has seen a sharp decline in violence
following a Sunni revolt against al-Qaida in Iraq. But attacks
continue. A suicide bomber killed 33 people in the area on March
10.
