At least 130 people were killed and 305 injured in a lorry bombing at a market place in central Baghdad, BBC reported. Iraqi police said the vehicle blew up in al-Sadriya district as people bought food ahead of a night-time curfew. It shattered stalls and left a huge crater in the street, in the heavily populated, predominantly Shia area. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki blamed loyalists of the executed former leader Saddam Hussein for the al-Sadriya attack. Only the Sadr City bombings in November, which killed more than 200 people, have claimed more lives.
