Iraq’s Bloody Day: 115 Killed, 145 Wounded

"At least 115 people were killed and 145 more were wounded in a continuing bomb spree in Baghdad and ongoing clashes in Anbar province. Several cities near the capital were also targeted today.
Iraqi forces in Anbar province retook Saqlawiya this morning. An oil tanker was blown up on a bridge near there yesterday, killing three soldiers. Gunmen also took over the town and forced police to hand over weapons. Security forces then launched an airstrike. At least 11 insurgents were killed. In Garma, six soldiers were wounded when a booby-trapped building collapsed around them."
