Bombs in Baghdad damage LA Times, WaPost bureaus

The bomb attacks that hit Baghdad this morning did damage to the bureaus of the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times and injured some of their employees.

From the Post:
Three Post employees were wounded by flying glass. Two of them sustained head injuries, and a third has broken ribs and a broken arm. All three are conscious, and the injuries do not appear life-threatening.
At least one Times employee suffered similar injuries, according to Baghdad correspondent Liz Sly, who spoke with Warren Olney on today's "To The Point."

At least 36 people were killed and 71 injured in the blasts, which come as Iraq prepares for March elections.
