"At least 24 people were killed early Tuesday in south-central Iraq when two car bombs detonated at a heavily fortified government compound in Diwaniyah province, a predominantly Shiite area that until now had largely escaped the violence that continues to grip the country. The explosions detonated moments apart at a compound that includes both the governor’s home and the provincial government headquarters, underscoring how even well-guarded facilities in Iraq remain vulnerable to attack."
