An explosion in the heart of Baghdad kills at least 25 people and leaves nearly 50 others wounded. The blast, which investigators say was the result of a 1,000-pound car bomb, left a huge crater outside the Mount Lebanon hotel, which was nearly destroyed by the blast. Hear NPR's Robert Siegel and NPR's Steve Inskeep.
