Car Bombing Kills 68 People

A suicide car bombing killed at least 68 people in Baquba, Iraq Wednesday, and wounded as many as 56 others. Iraqi police say a mini-bus was driven into a marketplace near a police station as recruits lined up outside, and detonated the bomb. Secretary of State Colin Powell, who is in Cairo, Egypt on a diplomatic trip, condemned the bombing Wednesday, calling it an attempt to "deny the Iraqi people their dream."

Baquba is about 30 miles north of Baghdad. Powell will travel to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bosnia and Poland later in the week.
