Iraq: Police in Iraq say a car bomb has exploded near a mosque in Baghdad, killing at least three people and wounding six others.
Authorities say the attack occurred today (Sunday) in the mostly Shi'ite neighborhood of Kamaliyah, in the eastern part of the city.
Separately, the U.S. military in Iraq says coalition forces killed five insurgents and wounded five others during a raid today (Sunday) on a safe house in Yusifiyah, just south of Baghdad. Military officials say one woman was killed and three others and a child were wounded in the violence.
US-Iran Nuclear: Two former U.S. National Security Council experts say military action against Iran could be more damaging to U.S. interests than the struggle in Iraq.
Former coordinators of security and counter-terrorism policy, Richard Clarke and Steven Simon, expressed their views today (Sunday) in "The New York Times" newspaper.
The former advisors to several presidents argue that any pre-emptive strike by the United States would start a process of spiraling escalation on both sides that could affect global oil prices, de-stabilize Iraq and threaten U.S. interests around the world.
China-Taiwan: Chinese President Hu Jintao is calling for new talks with Taiwan in an effort to maintain peace in the region.
Mr. Hu told Taiwan's former opposition leader, Lien Chan, in Beijing today (Sunday) the two sides should resume talks on "equal footing" as soon as possible.
Without specifying current government members, Mr. Hu said elements in Taiwan are creating obstacles to better relations.
China and Taiwan split in 1949 after a civil war. China considers the island a renegade province and insists it must reunify with the mainland.
