BAGHDAD - A suicide bomber blew up a small truck rigged with explosives near aBaghdad college yesterday, killing 18 people in an attack that came just a day after bomb blasts destroyed two crowded city markets.

US and Iraqi forces have launched a Baghdad security plan aimed at clamping down on the daily bombings and shootings that have made the city one of the most dangerous places in the world.

Police said the bomber detonated the truck in a parking lot between the College of Economic Sciences, a private university that is situated in western Baghdad's residential Iskan district, and a large foodstuff warehouse that belongs to the trade ministry. - Reuters
