(Baghdad, Iraq-AP) -- Authorities believe it may have been a failed attack on a police station full of U-S soldiers and Iraqi police.

A car exploded in southeast Baghdad today. Police say a white Volkswagen was destroyed. A badly mangled and headless body lay nearby.

A policeman says the body was thought to have been one of two men who were trying to get the explosives-laden car near the station. A second man was arrested.
