A suicide car bombing in central Baghdad has killed 10 people and wounded 40 others -- in the worst terrorist attack in the Iraqi capital since the transfer of power last month.
Prime Minister Iyad Allawi called the attack "naked aggression against the Iraqi people" and vowed to bring those responsible to justice. President Bush says he suspects al-Qaida-linked terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was behind the attack.
An Islamist website posted a message in the name of al-Zarqawi threatening the life of Mr. Allawi.
Also Wednesday, attackers killed the governor (Oussama Yousef Kachmula) of the northern province (Nineveh) that includes Mosul. Two bodyguards were also killed in the roadside ambush.
And in Ramadi, at least three people were killed and 20 wounded in clashes that erupted when militants fired on a U.S. patrol.
