Reports: Eight Killed In Baghdad Car Bomb

Eight people were reported killed when a car bomb exploded near a liquor store in southwest Baghdad today.

Reports say the blast in the al-Shurta al-Rabaa area also injured 20 people. There has been a decline of violence in Iraq in past years, but low level attacks continue.

Five people were killed on April 28 when suicide bombers attacked police checkpoints in the south of the capital.
