BAGHDAD (AP) - Nearly a dozen car bombs that have struck mostly Shiite neighborhoods in Baghdad today have killed more than 50 people. Dozens more have been wounded.
The country's Interior Ministry blames al-Qaida-linked insurgents, saying they are exploiting the political infighting and security shortcomings to stage attacks.
The deadliest of the day's bombings was in the eastern Sadr City district, where police say a parked car bomb tore through a small vegetable market and its parking lot, killing seven people and wounding 16.
That was followed by 10 other parked car bombs, which went off in quick sequence in the several Shiite neighborhoods and two Sunni areas. Then 10 explosions also struck either outdoor markets or parking lots, killing 44 people and wounded another 139.
No group has claimed responsibility for today's wave of violence, which bears the hallmarks of al-Qaida's local branch in Iraq, known as the Islamic State of Iraq.

Passwords for some of the most popular internet sites, including Facebook, Twitter and Google have been stolen and apparently leaked on the internet. SpiderLabs says it uncovered the passwords during its latest internet sweep for the "Pony Botnet Controller," a malware-spreading set of programs. What this basically means is that the passwords were not leaked by Facebook or the other companies, but from thousands of computers infected with the malware.>>
