Bomb blast in Hilla

At least three people are killed and more than a dozen wounded when a car bomb blew up in the Iraqi city of Hilla. A member of the Babil city council said the blast reflected the country's unstable security situation. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) HUSSEIN KAMOUN, MEMBER OF BABIL CITY COUNCIL, SAYING: "The blasts in Ramadi, Babil and Basra are due to the political situation. As the security situation is unstable, we could expect such criminal acts." Earlier on Monday, a car bomb exploded inside a residential complex housing for displaced Shi'ite Muslims in Mosul, killing at least eight people and wounding four others. Political tensions in Iraq have been high since December when Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's government ordered the arrest of a Sunni vice president, touching off a crisis that has many fearing a relapse into sectarian conflict.
