More Than 20 Killed in Iraq Bombings

More than 20 people are killed in Iraq in two separate double bombings. A vehicle packed with explosives drove into a crowd in a popular Baghdad ice cream shop, followed shortly by a second car bomb. Another, similar pair of explosions struck in Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit.
