RYM BRAHIMI, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Daryn, hospital sources I spoke to just an hour ago say something between 47 and 57 people were killed in that bombing in a marketplace, a very popular marketplace in Baghdad. The Ministry of Information's figures put the number of dead at 58. The hospital sources say that there's bound to be a rising death toll, a lot of wounded.

And it happened also that the marketplace is actually near a hospital where doctors were already treating the wounded from a previous bombing that killed 14 or 15 people in...

COSTELLO: Rym, I'm sorry. Rym, I'm sorry, I'm going to go ahead and interrupt you, because our British military briefing is beginning right now in Kuwait City.
