Twin car bomb attacks just outside the Green Zone in
Baghdad destroyed three government buildings, killed 155
people, and injured 520. The attack was the country's
worst since 2007 and killed an unspecified number of
children at the Justice Ministry day-care center. "There
were children killed in the swings," said a rescuer,
"others who died right where they sat on the see-saws."
More violence is expected as elections near; three
beheaded bodies were found in the province of
Babel. Fourteen Americans were killed in two helicopter
crashes in Afghanistan, and the Department of Defense
announced that 72 members of the U.S. military had
recently died while serving in Operation Enduring Freedom
in Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Jordan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan,
the Philippines, the Seychelles, the Sudan, Tajikistan,
Turkey, and Yemen, as well as at Guantanamo Bay.
