Car bombing in Iraq kills S.F. activist

"Humanitarian activist, 28-year-old Marla Ruzicka was killed in a Baghdad car bombing on Saturday. Her car pulled alongside a convoy of U.S. contractors just as a suicide bomber detonated his car. Ruzicka, her driver-translator and one guard on the convoy were killed. Five other people were wounded.

"It wasn't clear where Ruzicka was going, why she was on the notoriously dangerous Baghdad airport road or why her car pulled up alongside a convoy. Almost all Baghdad drivers slam on their brakes as soon as they see a row of slow-moving SUVs ahead to avoid possible car-bomb attacks.
