CNN Breaking:

Two suicide bombers struck a crowd of Shiite pilgrims today in Hilla, Iraq, killing at least 47 people and wounding at least 117, a Hilla police official told CNN.


BAGHDAD, Iraq - Two suicide bombers blew themselves up Tuesday in a crowd of Shiite pilgrims streaming toward a shrine south of Baghdad, killing up to 90 people, police said.

The coordinated attack happened on a main street in Hillah, about 60 miles south of Baghdad, said Capt. Muthana Khalid. More than 150 others were wounded in the blasts, he said.

Still, Bush just told me that large weapons caches were recently found, so this will probably all be over in another Friedman or 3.
