Car bomb explodes outside French consulate in Iraq's Nassiriya: police
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A car bomb exploded outside the French consulate building in the Iraqi city of Nassiriya on Sunday, wounding at least two people, part of a wave of nine attacks across the country, police said.
Nassiriya city, 300 km, 185 miles south of Baghdad, is a relatively stable part of the country, but it was hit by a suicide bombing against Shi'ite pilgrims at the start of this year.
