Suicide bombing of Interior Ministry retaliation for torture

Today, on Iraq's National Police Day, two suicide bombers disguised as police will infiltrated the heavily fortified Interior Ministry compound in Baghdad and blow themselves up killing 29.

An Internet site known for publishing extremist material from Al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi carried a claim of responsibility for yesterday's suicide attack, saying it was in revenge for the torture of Sunni Arab prisoners at two detention facilities run by the Shi'ite-led Interior Ministry.
