A massive bomb tore through a crowd gathered near a bus station in a Shiite neighbourhood of Baghdad on Saturday, killing at least 22 people and wounding 54, security officials said. "The toll in the Kadhimiyah explosion has risen to 22 killed and 54 injured," army spokesman Major General Qassim Atta told a foreign news agency. He said the explosion occurred in a car park used by commuters near a key city bus terminal in the Shiite neighbourhood of Kadhimiyah, northwest Baghdad. Initial Iraqi military reports said that the source of the explosion was a car bomb. However, a statement from the US military identified the bomb as an improvised explosive device (IED) and said 20 Iraqi civilians had been killed with 25 wounded.
