A suicide car bomber in Iraq has killed at least 125 people -- the deadliest attack of its kind since the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime in 2003.
The Monday morning attack outside a government building in Hilla, south of Baghdad, wounded more than 100 other people. Witnesses say the bomber drove a car into a crowd of people seeking medical checkups needed for government jobs. A nearby market was also destroyed. There has been no claim of responsibility.
The White House condemned the attack, calling those behind it the enemies of the Iraqi people. Meanwhile, the special Iraqi tribunal probing criminal charges against Saddam Hussein and his top lieutenants says it is ready to send the first batch of suspects to trial. No trial date has been set.
