Iraqi firefighters work on the charred wreckage of a civilian vehicle following a blast at a house near a church in Karada, central Baghdad March 16, 2005. Explosions rattled windows in the fortified Green Zone in Baghdad on Wednesday and warning sirens sounded, just minutes before the first meeting of the country's new parliament in the compound. No casualties were reported in the attack claimed by al Qaeda's wing in Iraq. REUTERS/Thaier Al-Sudani HH/TZ
