Another day, another carbombing from the religion of peace.

Iraqi police and hospital officials said a double bombing targeting police recruits in Baghdad has killed 16 people and injured 45. According to the AP, a police officer said a car parked near a police academy went off in a mainly Shiite area in northern Baghdad. According to him, a suicide bomber then blew himself up as police and recruits gathered at the site.

In Mosul, a suicide car bomber detonated his explosives as a joint U.S.-Iraqi convoy drove by in a crowded commercial area, a police officer said. At least 15 people were killed and 30 wounded in that attack, the officer said.

Earlier, an Iraqi military spokesman said a senior Defense Ministry official has been injured in a roadside bomb attack that killed one of his bodyguards. The spokesman, Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, conveyed the explosion occurred Monday in the Sulaikh neighborhood in northern Baghdad.

The wounded official, Maj. Gen. Mudhir al-Mola, is in charge of affairs related to the Sunni guards known as Sons of Iraq who have joined forces with U.S. troops against al-Qaeda in Iraq
