• Bombings in Iraqi capital kill 32, hours before curfew ends


    BAGHDAD: Attacks in Baghdad, including a suicide bombing inside a restaurant, killed at least 32 people on Saturday (Sunday in Manila), hours before a years-old nightly curfew was lifted. Doing away with the curfew — which most recently was in effect from midnight to 5:00 a.m. — brought an end to a longstanding policy aimed at curbing violence in the capital by limiting movement at night. But in a sign of the unrest still plaguing the capital, a suicide bomber struck in east Baghdad’s Jadida area, killing at least 23 people and wounding at least 43, officials said.
