In Italian, it sounds less worse

Autobomba, 2 Morti

FoxNews: KUFA, Iraq — A car bomb left at least two people dead and 20 injured near the "Green Zone," and fighting raged in the Shiite holy city of Kufa (search) early Monday, further eroding a deal to halt clashes with followers of a radical Muslim cleric.

On Monday ambulances rushed to the scene of the car bomb that rocked Baghdad near the headquarters of the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq.

The blast occurred about 500 yards from the place where the head of the Governing Council was assassinated in a car bombing on May 17. It wasn't clear if the attack was caused by a homicide bomber or what the target of the bomb was. Residents said there were no government officials living in the immediate vicinity.
