Denver Post:

Four large bombs exploded across Baghdad today, killing at least 157 people and wounding scores as violence climbed toward levels not seen since before the U.S.-Iraqi campaign to pacify the capital began two months ago.

In the deadliest of the attacks, a parked car bomb detonated in a crowd of workers at the Sadriyah market in central Baghdad, killing at least 112 people and wounding 94, said Raad Muhsin, an official at Al-Kindi Hospital where the victims were taken.
