Times of London:
At least 34 Iraqi civilians and three British soldiers were killed in four bomb and mortar attacks today, in a day of carnage which saw also saw the gruesome discovery of 20 beheaded bodies by a river.

The worst of the attacks saw 25 commuters killed at a bus station in Baghdad's al-Bayaa neighbourhood, a mixed Sunni and Shia area which has frequently been the focal point for attacks.

The powerful car bomb tore into crowds waiting during morning rush hour and also caused a huge crater in the ground, decimating surrounding buildings as it did so.

Doctors at the Iraqi capital's Yarmuk Hospital said they had received a total of 25 dead bodies, and ambulances were still pulling in with seriously wounded pedestrians. At least 45 were wounded in the attack, some seriously.
