Al-Arabiya reports that 64 were killed and 85 injured in two explosions in Baghdad. One explosion targeted souq al-ghazal, a bird and animal market in central Baghdad and the other targeted a popular market. Security forces say that in January 2008 alone, 541 Iraqis have died in explosions and other acts of violence in all Iraq’s provinces.
