Bomb Kills 150 in Iraq

Iraqis used heavy machines and shovels on Sunday to search for bodies after a huge truck bomb killed 150 people in a northern town and fresh attacks in and around Baghdad killed 31 others.

Two police officers in the Shi'ite town of Tuz Khurmato confirmed 150 people had been killed in Saturday's explosion that Iraqi officials blamed on Sunni Islamist al Qaeda. The officers said 20 people were still missing and 250 were wounded.
