Bomb on Mutanabi Street

Students in the History of Islamic Civilization course may remember Anthony Shadid's conversations with Muhammed Hayawi owner of the Renaissance Bookshop on Baghdad's Mutanabi Street, the center of the booktrade in Iraq's capital.

The Washington Post reports that the bombers have finally attacked this intellectually vital area, and Hayawi was killed.

Update: Anthony Shadid writes an appreciation of his friend.
