(Baghdad) -- Dozens are dead after six suicide bombers stormed a ministry building in Iraq. The attackers burst into the building Thursday and took hostages before injuring about 50 people and killing at least 24, including themselves. The massacre coincides with a month-long standoff between anti-government militants and the Iraqi army. No group is claiming responsibility, although suicide bombings are common of groups with al-Qaeda affiliation. Security officials fear more attacks will come as the fighting in Anbar continues.
