A US soldier patrols a popular market in Baghdad’s al-Kadhimiyah district. Iraqi lawmakers at a special session of parliament on Friday condemned a suicide bombing in their canteen and vowed that the spectacular breach of security would not derail the political process.

A suicide bomber wearing an explosive vest struck deep inside the heavily fortified International Zone on Thursday, killing eight people when he detonated inside the Parliament building just a few feet from the main chamber.
