The war is still over.

BAGHDAD (AFP)--At least 15 people were killed across Iraq Sunday, including seven by a bomb targeting a local leader of President Jalal Talabani's political party, officials said.

The bomb exploded in the town of Qara Tappa in the restive province of Diyala outside the house of Mohammed Ramadan Eisa, a local leader of Talabani's Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, the town's mayor Sherwan Shukra said.

"Eisa was seriously wounded in the blast but his wife, mother-in-law, his two children, one brother and two of his guards were killed," Shukra told AFP.
