BAGHDAD — Underlying the persistent danger of Iraq being swept up again by sectarian bloodletting, a suicide bomber blew himself up at an outdoor market south of Baghdad today, killing 15 people and wounding 30, police and hospital officials said.

They said the attack took place around sunset in the Shiite majority area of Mahmoudiya area, 20 miles south of the capital. No one claimed responsibility for the attack but it bore the hallmarks of Sunni militants who have for years targeted security forces and Shiite civilians.
