The week's news at a glance.

Baghdad

A series of insurgent attacks this week claimed the lives of more than 200 Iraqis. In a particularly bold Baghdad attack, two suicide bombers dressed as police officers and brandishing security passes got into the heavily guarded Interior Ministry headquarters and detonated themselves, killing 29 police. Top U.S. and Iraqi officials attending Police Day ceremonies at an adjacent building were not hurt. South of Baghdad, in Karbala, a suicide bombing at a Shiite mosque killed some 60 worshippers. In northern Iraq, meanwhile, a Black Hawk helicopter crashed, killing all 12 Americans on board.
