Suicide Car Bomber Kills 15 in Baghdad

Violence has ebbed across Iraq since the height of the fighting, but deadly bombings and shootings still occur almost daily as U.S. troops prepare to leave.

The Violence has ebbed, but there are daily bombings?

Uh Yeah, that sounds good for Iraq; you may not get shot or beat to death but you may get your ass Blown up!
Sounds like a nice place to live.

A suicide bomber slammed a car packed with explosives into the gate of a prison north of Baghdad on Monday, killing at least 15 people, Iraqi officials said.
The bombing in the town of Taji, about 12 miles north of the capital, is the third major attack in about a week in Iraq, and raises questions about the ability of the nation's security forces to protect the country after U.S. troops leave in just over a month.

A police officer said the attacker struck the main gate of al-Hout prison at 8:00 a.m. local time, when many employees and guards were on their way to work. Seven policemen were among the dead and the rest were civilians, he added. At least 22 people were wounded.
