Explosions in Baghdad kill
six, wound at least 16 others

Bombs detotonated
30 minutes apart at
bus stop, tea shop
BAGHDAD (AP) - Two
explosions in a Shiite neighbor-
hood of eastern Baghdad killed
six people and wounded at least
16 others today, Iraqi officials
said.
In the first and largest attack,
police officials say a motorbike
bomb went off near a bus stop
where day laborers gather look-
ing for work in the Sadr city
neighborhood, killing six people
and wounding10.
The explosion took place
while some of the workers were
having their breakfast sand-
wiches and tea and others where
trying to board a minibus, offi-
cials said.

Half an hour later, a roadside
bomb exploded near a small tea
shop in the same neighborhood,
wounding six people.
Medical officials at nearby
hospitals confirmed the casual-
ties. The officials spoke on con-
dition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to
release the information.
Iraqi leaders have warned of
a resurgence of Sunni and Shi-
ite militants and an increase in
violence following the U.S. troop
withdrawal, which was complet-
ed last month.
The early morning blasts fol-
lowed a series of deadly attacks
yesterday that targeted the
homes of police officers and a
member of a government-allied
militia. Those attacks, in the cit-
ies of Baqouba and Abu Ghraib
outside Baghdad, killed four
people, including two children,

officials said.
The latest violence comes as
Iraqi politicians remain dead-
locked in a festering political
crisis that threatens to re-ignite
simmering sectarian tensions in
the country.
Prime Minister Nouri al-
Maliki's government, dominated
by Iraq's majority Shiites, issued
an arrest warrant for the coun-
try's top Sunni politician last
month.
The Sunni official, Vice Presi-
dent Tariq al-Hashemi, is cur-
rently holed up in Iraq's Kurdish
north - effectively out of reach
of state security forces.
Al-Maliki's main political
rival, the Sunni-backed Iraqiya
bloc, is boycotting parliament
sessions and Cabinet meetings to
protest what they say are efforts
by the governmentto consolidate
power and marginalize them.

Lack of support
in Iowa cited as
cause of campaign's
termination
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bach-
mann said yesterday she's ending
her bid for the Republicans presi-
dential nomination after her
last-place finish in Iowa's leadoff
precinct caucuses.
"The people of Iowa spoke with
a very clear voice, so I decided
to stand aside," Bachmann said
at an emotional news confer-
ence, flanked by her family, hours
after the caucus results were
announced. "I have no regrets,
none whatsoever. We never com-
promised our principles."
The conservative Minnesota
congresswoman's decision, widely
expected following her dismal
Iowa showing, leaves her support-
ers up for grabs by the other can-
didates in the race and could be
a boost for former Sen. Rick San-
torum. Santorum narrowly lost

the caucuses to front-runner Mitt
Romney and is trying to emerge
as the clear conservative alterna-
tive to the former Massachusetts
governor.
Bachmann's decision gives San-
torum a clear shot at consolidating
the conservative vote heading into
the next round of contests, though
former House speaker Newt Gin-
grich and Texas Gov. Rick Perry
still draw support from that pool.
Bachmann, 55, had told a small
group of supporters Tuesday
night that she was staying in the
race as the only true conservative
who can defeat President Barack
Obama.
But hours later, she announced
her departure from the race, cap-
ping a deep and long slide for a
candidate who entered the cam-
paign last summer with very high
expectations.
There was great excitement
among Republican activists when
she began her campaign and she
translated that into a solid win in
the Iowa straw poll.
But as the campaign moved for-
ward, Bachmann ran into a series
of organizational and financial

hurdles. She had a big shake-up in
her campaign staff, with key back-
ers leaving to join Ron Paul's cam-
paign, and her fundraising trailed
virtually all of her rivals. That
slide was capped Tuesday night
with her sixth-place showing in
the leadoff precinct caucuses.
Bachmann did not take ques-
tions after her announcement nor
did she talk about her future plans,
including whether she would
endorse another Republican for
the presidential nomination or
seek re-election to Congress.
"I look forward to the next
chapter in God's plan," Bachmann
said. "I'm grateful to have been a
part of this presidential contest."
Her campaign manager, Keith
Nahigian, told The Associated
Press, that Bachmann has "no
time frame or person" in mind for
an endorsement.
She blamed her demise on her
straight-shooting, uncompromis-
ing approach to the issues. She
campaigned as a hard-liner on
social issues like abortion and gay
rights, as well as arguing for a
massive shrinking of the federal
government.

Authorities found
surface-to-air
missiles, explosives
on ship last month
HELSINKI (AP) - The
Finnish government yesterday
authorized the transport of 69
impounded Patriot missiles en
route to South Korea from Ger-
many on a British-registered
cargo boat.
The M/S Thor Liberty, which
arrived in Finland last month
from Germany to load a ship-
ment of anchor chains and paper
machine parts for China, was

held in port after authorities dis-
covered the surface-to-air mis-
siles and 160 tons of explosive
picric acid.
Police impounded the cargo
and launched an investigation
after port handlers reported
that the explosives, also headed
for China, were inadequately
packed and that the missiles did
not have the required transit
documents.
Government officials yester-
day said they had studied the
case and decided to grant the
Korean Defense Acquisition
Program Administration a re-
export license. It has until the
end of August to ship the mis-
siles from Finland.

"There was no reason to delay
anymore," Finnish Defense Min-
ister Stefan Wallin said. "Every-
thing is in order."
Earlier, the German Defense
Ministry said the cargo of mis-
siles was an official shipment
that was fully declared and had
all necessary clearings from
German authorities.
Also, Finnish officials have
said that the picric acid could be
shipped once it is safely packed.
However, despite the govern-
ment decision yesterday it was
not clear when the boat would be
able to sail pending the outcome
of the police investigation. Police
declined comment on the inves-
tigation.
