Car Bomb in Najaf Kills 3 on Day Before National Elections

A car bomb exploded about 100 yards from a bus for pilgrims in the Shiite holy city of Najaf (100 miles south of Baghdad) Saturday, killing at least three people — including two two Iranian pilgrims.

Injured people from the blast were transported to al-Hakeem hospital.

The car bomb was detonated one day before Iraqis vote in key parliamentary elections. More than 6,000 candidates are competing for 325 seats in the Iraqi parliament.
