Triple explosions rock central Baghdad (17 Aug 2005)
At least 25 people have been killed in three car bombings in the center of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
The blasts occurred within minutes of each other, two reportedly at the busy Nahda bus station.
"Two cars exploded in the same Al-Nahda bus station 10 minutes apart and there are number of victims," an interior ministry source was quoted as saying.
The third blast is said to have gone off at a nearby hospital 15 minutes later, as victims of the first two attacks were being brought in.
It comes as Iraq's politicians continue talks to reach a deal on a new charter to shape Iraq's future.
One car exploded inside the station and the other at the entrance.
The bus station serves various parts of the country and would normally have been crowded with travellers at around 0800 (0400GMT) when the blasts occurred.
A third car bomber detonated his explosives at Kindi Hospital in the same neighbourhood, causing several casualties, police said.
