BBC NEWS | Middle East | Iraq suffers day of grim violence: "Iraq suffers day of grim violence
Dozens of people have been killed in Iraq as the country experienced another day of extreme violence.
A car bomb exploded on Tuesday morning close to an Iraqi police station in central Baghdad, killing 47 people, health ministry officials say.
Gunmen opened fire on a police minibus killing 12 policemen and a civilian in Baquba, north of Baghdad.
A statement said to be from alleged al-Qaeda militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's group said it carried out the attacks.
Meanwhile medical officials said 10 Iraqis were killed as US forces and insurgents clashed in the town of Ramadi, west of Baghdad.

And the US military said three US troops were killed in separate attacks, two in Baghdad and one in the northern city of Mosul, where five were also reported injured.
A series of explosions was heard in Baghdad's Green Zone, housing the US embassy and the interim government, on Tuesday evening.
In other developments across Iraq:
An explosion hits an oil pipeline near Beiji, north of Baghdad. Iraq's interim Electricity Minister says power supplies across Iraq are affected, but will be restored in hours.
Insurgents sabotage another pipeline 60km west of Kirkuk, halting exports to Turkey.
US and Iraqi forces allow civilians to return to the mainly ethnic Turkmen northern city of Talafar, after Turkey threatens to stop co-operating with the US over Iraq unless an assault there ends.
Militants release a Turkish translator taken hostage in late July, apparently in response to Turkey's actions over Talafar.
Two Turkish truck drivers are taken hostage near the town of Tikrit.
