Mount Lebanon Hotel Bombing, March 17, 2004

On March 17, 2004, at just after 8pm local time, a large car or truck bomb rocked central Baghdad, severely damaging the Mount Lebanon Hotel and at least 5 nearby buildings. At least 7 civilians were killed and 40 injured in the blast. The hotel was somewhat small, with less security than many of the larger hotels nearby. Many of the victims were Iraqi families who lived in the adjacent buildings, but other victims were foreigners, including two British citizens.
