A suicide car bombing in Baghdad kills the oldest member of Iraq's national assembly. Dhari Ali al-Fayadh, 87, died along with his son and at least two bodyguards. Many Iraqis say conditions are worse today than they were when U.S. administrators handed power to Iraqis a year ago. Statistics on bombings seem to bear that out.
