Baghdad Car Bomb Kills 9

A car bomb in a Shiite neighborhood of Baghdad killed at least nine people and wounded 18 others yesterday, a day after a deadly wave of bombings swept the Iraqi capital and raised concerns that Iraqi forces were ill-prepared to secure the city as United States troops thin out.

The Interior Ministry, meanwhile, warned of the likelihood of more car bombings, saying measures were being taken to try to prevent them.

A parked car exploded at noon yesterday on a busy commercial street in the Shiite neighborhood of Kazimiyah, not far from a mosque where midday prayers were under way.
