  'Stay in Iraq' US tells Red Cross
Updated 28 October 2003, 10.43
Bombs killed at least 35 people in Baghdad
The United States is trying to convince people helping to make things better in Iraq not to leave the country after Monday's bombings.

A bomb exploded outside a building used by the International Red Cross, and now they're deciding if they want to keep working in Iraq.

At least 35 people were killed and more than 200 were injured in a series of suicide bomb attacks in Baghdad.

The US think that if the Red Cross leave, it's a victory for the bombers.

Monday was the worst day of violence since the regime of Saddam Hussein was ended by US-led forces in April.

The US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, said about the Red Cross: "They are needed. Their work is needed. And if they are driven out, then the terrorists win."
