BAGHDAD (AP) — Police and hospital official say a car bomb in Baghdad's Shiite Sadr City district has killed 10 people and wounded 25.

They said the blast targeted a crowded outdoor market Tuesday in the sprawling district in eastern Baghdad.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to journalists.

The latest death toll takes to 20 the number of people killed in violence in Baghdad on Tuesday.

Additionally, four bullet-riddled bodies, assumingly Sunnis, were discovered on Tuesday in a Shiite district.

The targeting of the Shiite district came as signs emerged of a reprisal sectarian slaughter of Sunnis in Iraq, as police said pro-government Shiite militiamen killed nearly four dozen detainees after insurgents tried to storm a jail northeast of Baghdad on Monday night.
