BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say a late-night car bomb has killed 11 people in a Shiite stronghold in Baghdad in an attack that has brought the day's death toll to 75.
Police said the car exploded outside a coffee shop in Sadr City, a poor neighborhood that is the seat of power for one of Iraq's most politically influential clerics and home to his militia.
Police were firing into the air to disperse the crowds after the 9 p.m. Sunday blast that wounded 20 people.
It was the latest attack on a deadly day of countrywide attacks that left 75 people dead and more than 300 wounded.
Officials at al-Sadr Hospital confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information.
