Special report: Tension escalates in Iraq     

    BAGHDAD, Dec. 22 (Xinhua) -- A suicide car bomb struck a security checkpoint in western Baghdad on Saturday afternoon, killing a soldier and wounding six people, an Interior Ministry source said.

    "A suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden car into a checkpoint manned by Iraqi army and police forces in the Ghazaliyah neighborhood," the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

    The attack resulted in the killing of a soldier, wounding two others, two policemen and two civilians, the source added.

    Ghazaliyah, a Sunni neighborhood, has been relatively calm since the local anti-American insurgent groups converted to work with the U.S. and Iraqi troops in battling against the al-Qaida network fighters.
