A suicide car bomb has killed at least 16 people and wounded more than 40 – mostly police officers – in the Iraqi city of Hilla, south of Baghdad, authorities say.

Iraq’s army and police have been on high alert for revenge attacks after the killing of Osama bin Laden.

The Hilla bomber rammed his car into the entrance of a police headquarters in the centre of the mainly Shi’ite city.
