At least 10 people were wounded tonight as Iraqi civilians celebrated new years in a downtown restaurant in the capital Baghdad, the identity of the bombers is unknown at the present but is presumed to be militant civilians rebelling against the US administration.

 


The blast shook nearby hotels housing journalists from all across the world and minutes later helicopters were seen hovering above the Green zone, the secure compound where the interim government and administration is housed.

A statement is expected to be released in the coming hours.

Hey, good point! I guess you see what you expect to see. I read 10 dead. So they made a showing, but couldn't deliver.

The New Year's Eve car bombing of an upscale Baghdad restaurant, which killed eight people, was a sign that opponents of the U.S.-led occupation forces may be shifting to civilian targets, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Thursday.
The so-called "hard targets" in Baghdad like coalition complexes and Iraqi police stations are increasingly well guarded, pushing insurgents toward soft targets, like Nabil Restaurant, said a U.S. military officer with the 1st Armored Division. He spoke on the condition of anonymity.


What a way to make a point.
