A small graveyard of cars sits northeast of Baghdad where police say a car bomb killed at least three people. Police say the blast struck near a popular restaurant in a Shi'ite neighborhood. The explosion tore off the restaurant's facade, scattering furniture, chairs and other items around the area. Blood now stains the grounds, serving as a reminder of Iraq's deadly violence. Last year, violence rose to its highest levels in years, killing nearly 8,000 civilians. Police say 17 other civilians were wounded.
