IRAQ WRAPUP 3-Suicide car bomb kills 13 elite Iraqi commandos

"BAGHDAD, Sept 25 (Reuters) - A suicide car bomber attacked an elite Iraqi police unit in Baghdad, killing 13 commandos in the worst of a series of violent incidents to hit the country on Sunday.

Iraqi police said the car bomber targeted the police commando patrol as they travelled on a highway in the east of the capital. Ten commandos were also wounded, police said.

The bomb followed clashes overnight between U.S. troops and Shi'ite militiamen loyal to cleric Moqtada al-Sadr in the eastern Baghdad district of Sadr City. Police said eight militia fighters were killed and five wounded in the fighting...

...South of the capital, in Hilla, a bomber on a bicycle blew himself up in a crowded vegetable market, killing four people, including a woman and a child, and wounding 48, police said."
