BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- An apparent suicide car bomb Sunday detonated on a side street near the Baghdad Hotel killing at least six people and wounding 32, U.S. and Iraqi officials said.
The hotel is believed to house U.S. officials. Iraqi police forces fired on the car as it sped through a checkpoint and down a side street near the hotel, preventing the vehicle from reaching its apparent target, said Col. Peter Mansoor, a U.S. Army spokesman at the scene.
"As far as I know, there were no casualties inside the hotel, and the building was undamaged," Mansoor said. "They did their job, and they prevented a greater loss of life. The security worked."
Ahmed Kathmn, a senior official of the Iraqi Interior Ministry, said most of the six dead were Iraqi police and security personnel. It was unclear whether the driver was included in that death toll.
Kathmn and a doctor at nearby Kindi hospital said 32 people were wounded in the attack.
So, do you think the Iraq War era protest music will be as good as the Vietnam War era protest music? I mean, Limp Bizkit ain't Jefferson Airplane, but they sure scream a hell of a lot more.
Can we actually make an equation in which Fred Durst = Grace Slick? Hmm.
Tick, tick, tick...
