A car bombing outside the Baghdad hotel that houses the United Nations kills the driver and an Iraqi policeman. The attack is near the location of last month's bombing of U.N. offices that killed more than 20 people. The incident follows a weekend of violence in Iraq that left at least three U.S. soldiers dead and a leading member of the country's governing council seriously wounded. Hear NPR's Guy Raz.
