Baghdad: Suicide Car Bomb Kills 11
The casualties reportedly include security guards, prison staff and police officers. The BBC said that the attack occurred as many prison employees were on their way to start their shifts at the jail, and may have been part of a prison escape attempt.
The attack is the third major attack in about a week in Iraq. Observers said that it "raises questions" about the ability of Iraqi security forces to maintain order after U.S. troops leave in just over a month.
