A cold front will approach the Brazos Valley later today. Isolated areas of rain and thunderstorms could develop along and ahead of that front between mid-afternoon and early evening. Good news: rain & storm activity will be quick moving (1 hour or less). Bad news: a few severe thunderstorms are possible with large hail and strong, damaging winds being the main concern. A brief, isolated tornado threat cannot be ruled out, as well.
Number of dead in suicide bombing rises to 110 Iraqi police now say 110 people are dead in a gruesome suicide bombing in Hilla. The blast is the deadliest since May 2003, when President Bush declared major combat over.
The street outside the Hilla General hospital is littered with torn limbs, feet and other body parts.
The blast appears to have targeted a crowd of police and national guard recruits waiting for physicals outside a clinic. It was so powerful it nearly vaporized the suicide bomber's car.
