Life is like a box of mangled human body parts

Baghdad suicide bombs kill at least 60:

First a BMW car rear-ended a police vehicle and exploded, prompting crowds of day laborers and stallholders to take shelter on the other side of the square. Two minutes later a pickup truck ploughed into the crowd and exploded.

"After the explosion, not a single person in the square was standing. I thought everyone was dead," said Khaled Nasser, a laborer who searched the wreckage for four of his companions. "I found them all cut in half - no legs - and for some I could only find their heads," he said.
