(Newser) – Two suicide bombers blew themselves up in an Iraqi army recruitment center, killing 35 people and wounding at least 63, the New York Times reports. Most of the dead were recruits. The attack took place in Baquba, the capital of Iraq's ethnically mixed Diyala province. On Sunday the country's interior ministry announced a major crackdown in Diyala, which will involve American troops.
