Another suicide blast in Iraq; this one claims 9 lives

A suicide bomber detonated his explosives vest in a crowd of Sons of Iraq militiamen waiting to collect their paychecks Saturday, killing at least nine and wounding dozens more near the Southern Iraqi town of Iskandariyah. The Sons of Iraq program is credited with playing a major role in the steep reduction in violence across Iraq over the past year.
