10 Dead, 52 Injured In Baghdad

The aftermath of a mortar attack in Baghdad earlier this year (epa) December 6, 2006 - Iraqi police say mortars fired in a busy commercial district in Baghdad today killed eight people and wounded 40.

Four or five bombs fell on the Midan district of Baghdad's old town.

This is the latest in a spate of such attacks across the capital.

Elsewhere in Baghdad, at least two people were killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up on a bus traveling through a mainly Shi'te neighborhood, Al-Sadr City. Another 12 were wounded in the attack.

The attacks came hours before the release of a U.S. bipartisan report expected to call for the United States to change its policy in Iraq.
