November 30, 2010 |  3:18 pm


At least three Iraqi civilians were killed and 22 injured in a car bomb attack late Monday in the still-volatile city of Baqubah, an agricultural hub about 35 miles northeast of Baghdad, a security source said.

One news agency reported that the death toll had risen to four by Tuesday.

The car bomb exploded in an area with popular restaurants and cafes.
