Suicide bombings in Iraq are continuing Sunday as townspeople south of Baghdad worked to identify the charred remains of dozens of people killed late Saturday in a massive blast in Musayyib.
Saturday's bomber positioned himself near a fuel truck and the blast devastated the center of Musayyib, killing at least 70 people and wounding more than 80 others. In Baghdad today, at least eight Iraqis were killed in four bombings targeting police and military convoys.
Separately, a U.S. soldier was reported killed and two others wounded by a roadside bomb in Kirkuk. Meanwhile, Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari met today in the Iranian capital with outgoing Iranian President Mohammed Khatami.
The two Shi'ite leaders are expected to sign several key energy deals, including one for a pipeline carrying refined fuel to Iraq from central Asia through Iran.
