|Bomber strikes Iraqi army recruits|
At least 48 people have been killed in a suicide bomb attack at an army recruitment centre in the Iraqi capital.
Iraqi officials said at least 129 other people were wounded in the blast on Tuesday, when a suicide attacker detonated a bomb as men queued outside the centre in central Baghdad.
The attack occurred at the historical site of the country's defence ministry, a building that was turned into an army recruitment centre and military base after the 2003 US-led invasion.
Yasir Ali, who had been waiting outside the military headquarters said that he saw the bomber, describing him as a blond young man who walked up to an officer and blew himself up.
"Severed hands and legs were falling over me," the Associated Press news agency quoted Ali as saying.
"I was soaked with blood from the body parts and wounded and dead people falling over and beside me."
