Deadly car bomb explodes in Baghdad

Mobile phone footage handed to Reuters in Baghdad shows the immediate aftermath of a deadly blast in Iraq's capital. At least three people were killed and 14 others wounded when a car bomb targeted civilians near a bus terminal in Baghdad's Hurriya district. One eyewitness said it all happened very quickly. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) EYEWITNESS, AHMED, SAYING: "We were about to leave the house when a car arrived on the scene. Suddenly the blast took place, we didn't know what happened. This house and that vehicle were damaged in the blast. What did these people do to get this?" Tensions between Shi'ite, Kurdish and Sunni factions in Iraq's power-sharing government have been on the rise this year. The latest violence follows more than a week of protests against Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki by thousands of Sunni demonstrators.
