Almost 70 people have died in another day of violence in Iraq that included a massive car bombing in Baghdad.
The car bomb exploded outside a police training center, killing 47 and wounding more than 100. Many of the casualties were civilians shopping in a nearby market.
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's terror group has claimed responsibility.
North of Baghdad, at least 11 Iraqi policemen were killed in a drive by shooting in the city of Baquba. Clashes between U.S. troops and Iraqi insurgents killed at least 10 people in the Sunni Muslim town of Ramadi, while an ambush in Mosul killed a U.S. soldier.
Meanwhile, Iraqi oil exports have been sharply cut because of an attack on a pipeline near Bayji, in the north. The attack also affected a local power station, cutting electricity to much of the country.
