Some seven people were killed and 47 wounded in Baghdad on Monday when a suicide bomber detonated his explosive belt as people queued up outside a bank, a police source said. The source said poor Iraqis were queuing up to collect compensation for food rations the government had failed to distribute last year, when the explosion scattered bloodied bodies into the street in an eastern district of the capital.[Reuters]
