Blast Kills 17 in Iraq; Three Turks Kidnapped

At least 17 Iraqis die and more than 40 are injured in a bombing in Hilla, 60 miles south of Baghdad. And three Turks are the latest victims of insurgent attacks on foreign civilians in Iraq. The Arab TV network Al-Jazeera reports that a suspected militant group is threatening to behead the captives within 72 hours unless Turkey ends support for U.S.-led operations in Iraq.
