font size    

Ten people were killed and 26 others wounded when a car bomb went off near a mosque in southeastern Baghdad district on Wednesday, a well informed police source said.

"An explosive-laden car parking in a market place near a mosque in the Kamaliyah neighborhood detonated after 9:00 a.m. (0600 GMT), " the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The attack killed at least 10 people and wounded 26 others, the source said, citing his first reports about the incident.

The attack came a day after a suicide bomber drove a vehicle loaded with large amount of explosives and detonated it in Tayaran Square where hundreds of day laborers were waiting for jobs.

The toll of Tuesday's attack rose to 66 people killed and 236 others wounded, the source said, changing his previous report in which he said that 56 people were killed and 221 others wounded.

Violence sweeps Iraqi cities as insurgent attacks, sectarian killings, car bombings, roadside bombs claim dozens of Iraqi lives daily.
