Albany- Witnesses say a cement truck blew up at a concrete wall outside the Canal Hotel in Baghdad, where the UN is based. More than 100 people were injured in the blast.

Political analysts say the bombing is likely an act of frustration by the Iraqi people.

"They expect more from America to fix the infrastructure, to fix electricity, let water flow and let oil flow right there in Iraq. If you can do this, yes, you can turn the hatred in to great liking," says Dr. Kwame Dankwa.

Dr. Dankwa believes if water, power, and oil are restored to the Iraqi people by mid-October for Ramadan, the holiest holiday in the Islamic religion, bombings and attacks will begin to cease.
