Baghdad Blasts Kill 34

BAGHDAD -There's been more deadly violence in baghdad.

At least 21 people were killed when a suicide bomber drove his car into a police convoy.  Among the dead are 16 police officers and five civilians. 

Another 13 officers and eight civilians were wounded in the morning explosion.

The attack comes in the wake of yesterday's carnage in baghdad which killed at least 160 people and wounded 570 others.  It was the capital city's bloodiest day since major combat was declared over after the 2003 u-s invasion.

Al-qaida has claimed responsibility for the string of bombings and attacks.

An audio statement on the internet says they're being carried out in the name of sunni insurgents in retaliation for a u-s-iraqi offensive near the syrian border.
