Bombs Rock Baghdad on Monday
Powerful explosions rocked downtown Baghdad at 10:35 pm local time on Monday, as a rocket also landed in a parking lot near the American headquarters. It is where Coalition Provisional Authority head Paul Bremer and his aides park, but no casualties were reported. Sirens went off and US officials at the Coalition compound were told to take cover.
A man getting off a bus in Baghdad stepped on and detonated a roadside bomb. He was killed, and three other passengers were wounded.

Guerrillas in the Sunni Arab areas west of Baghdad launched two attacks on Iraqi police, killing 7 of them.
Near the Shiite holy city of Najaf, guerrillas blew up bombs outside the Spanish garrison, but, again, no damage was reported.
In the northern oil-rich city of Kirkuk, two small rockets exploded at the US military base there, but no reports of damage.
