A car bomb exploded outside a Shiite mosque packed with worshippers celebrating a major Muslim holiday Friday, and a homicide driver blew up an ambulance at the wedding of a Shiite couple south of the capital. At least 21 people died and dozens were wounded — including the bride and groom.
The attacks came a day after Iraq's most feared terror leader, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (search), denounced Shiites in a recording that appeared aimed at sowing division ahead of the Jan. 30 elections. Shiites, long the oppressed majority in Iraq, are expected to take power in the balloting, which Sunni Muslim extremists have vowed to disrupt.
