Deadly blast in Iraq

Text size Aa Aa

A car bomb has exploded in a small town northeast of Baghdad, killing at least 25 people and wounding 40.

Iraqi police sources say the toll could rise as the streets of Houaider were crowded with people ending Ramadan for the day when the blast went off. A vehicle blew up as it went through a checkpoint in the Shi’ite town north of Baquba, situated in the notorious “Sunni triangle”.
