At least 19 dead in Baghdad area bombings

"More than a dozen bomb attacks in and around Baghdad on Sunday left at least 19 people dead, including 12 people killed in a suicide attack, and more than 80 wounded, the series of attacks comes just days after blasts against police in a tense northern city killed 29 people, with just months to go before all US forces must withdraw from Iraq

A total of 12 roadside bombs, three vehicles packed with explosives, one magnetic "sticky bomb" and one suicide attacker struck in the spate of morning blasts on Sunday

The deadliest attack saw 12 people killed and 23 wounded in a suicide bombing in the town of Taji, 25 kilometres (15 miles) north of the capital

The interior ministry official said the initial car bomb had exploded as a US army convoy was passing through Taji, but an American military spokesman said he had received "no indication" of any such attack.

In Baghdad, four roadside bombs and a car bomb near a police station in the southern neighbourhood of Al-Amil killed two people and wounded 15, including three policemen.

Also in the south, a magnetic "sticky bomb" attached to a car in Dora neighbourhood killed an anti-Qaeda militiaman and wounded four of his comrades.

Two separate roadside bombs, one near a hospital and another near a popular market, in the predominantly Shiite north Baghdad district of Sadr City left two people dead and 14 wounded, the interior ministry official said.

Also in north Baghdad, a car bomb targeting a police brigadier general's convoy killed a civilian and wounded five people, including two of the senior commander's bodyguards.

Sunday's violence comes a day after seven people were killed in attacks in the disputed northern province of Kirkuk,

Six other roadside bombs in south, central and east Baghdad killed one person and wounded 23 others.

Further raising tension in the oil-producing region after three bombings killed 29 people in Iraq's deadliest day since late March."

"I blame the occupier forces," said resident Kamel al-Fartossi, a truck driver, referring to U.S. troops. "They want to prove that Iraq is still an unstable country so they can stay longer."

Um Ali , 53 years old, a mother of six and street vendor who sells vegetables, said this about Sunday's death and destruction: "What can we do? This is our destiny."

Insurgents attack Afghan police outpost, killing 6

"The four gunmen and suicide bombers, who wore police uniforms to gain entry, also died after storming the traffic-police compound.

In what has become a near-daily drumbeat of insurgent attacks on Afghan government and security installations, a team of gunmen and suicide bombers on Sunday stormed a police outpost in an eastern city, killing six people, most of them Afghan police and soldiers.

Guerrilla-style attacks like this one are increasingly favored by the Taliban and other insurgents, who are reluctant to engage in direct military confrontations with troops far more numerous or Western.

U.S. and other NATO commanders say they believe they have blunted the momentum of the insurgency, but blazing urban gun battles like this one generally leave local people feeling rattled and insecure — thus achieving a key aim of the militants

NATO force generally tries to let Afghan police and soldiers take the lead in coping with such incidents, in preparation for an expected drawdown of Western troops that is to begin this summer."

"The attacks have raised concerns about Taliban infiltration in the Afghan national security forces, but also underscore the ease with which militants, posing as soldiers or police officers, can blend into the ranks and bypass security checkpoints."

Iran's supreme leader and president wrestle for power

"The dispute between Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ignites concern inside the nation that the infighting weakens Iran's ability to project power internationally amid historic instability across the Mideast.

The eyebrow-raising dispute between Ahmadinejad's camp and the conservative clerical and political class is rippling across the world — and igniting concern inside Iran that it weakens the country's ability to project power internationally at a moment of historic instability across the region."

Iceland volcano eruption larger than last year's, closes airport

"Iceland volcano: the eruption of an Iceland volcano, Saturday, is larger than last year's Eyjafjallajokull eruption that shut down air travel in Europe.

The eruption of the Grimsvotn volcano was far larger than one a year ago at another Icelandic volcano that upended travel plans for 10 million people around the world

Iceland closed its main international airport and canceled all domestic flights Sunday as a powerful volcanic eruption sent a plume of ash, smoke and steam 12 miles (20 kilometers) into the air."

"(It was) much bigger and more intensive than Eyjafjallajokull," the volcano whose April 2010 eruption shut down airspace across Europe for five days"

he said.

"There is a very large area in southeast Iceland where there is almost total darkness and heavy fall of ash,"
