US troops raid psychiatric hospital over deadly attacks

US troops raided a psychiatric hospital in Baghdad on Sunday and arrested a man suspected of involvement in two recent bombings blamed on mentally impaired women, the US Military said. Ten days ago, explosives carried by two women, said by Iraqi and US officials to be mentally handicapped teenagers and unwitting suicide bombers, blew up in two popular pet markets in central Baghdad, killing 99 people and wounding more than 150.
