Car Bomb Rips Through Iraqi Capital

Residents gather at the site of a car bomb attack in the Hurriya district in Baghdad, January 10, 2013.
A car bomb has exploded in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, killing at least four people and wounding 14 others.

The blast Thursday near a bus stop in the mainly Shi'ite Hurriyah neighborhood destroyed several vehicles and damaged nearby buildings.

Amateur video captured shortly after the blast showed multiple cars engulfed in flames.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

The violence comes amid anti-government protests led by Sunnis complaining about treatment under Shi'ite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
