New Iraq tactic: Militants hid bombs in vacant apartments

Strangers who in recent weeks had rented empty apartments in residential buildings were blamed for explosions that ripped through the complexes just as residents were leaving for work Tuesday morning. Neighbors reported that they never saw moving trucks or any other sign of the new tenants, who Iraqi authorities said packed the vacant spaces with explosives. At least 35 people died.
