30 dead as Iraq bombs target hotels popular with Westerners

Bombings at three of Baghdad's most popular hotels killed more than 30 people on Monday in what appeared to be the latest round of coordinated attacks aimed at destabilizing the Iraqi government. The bombings came on the day Iraq's government announced that it had executed Ali Hassin al Majid, known as Chemical Ali, who had received four death sentences for his campaigns against Iraqi Kurds and Shiites during Saddam Hussein’s regime.
