Children 'among Baghdad bomb casualties'

Children were among the casualties of a suicide bomber who killed 25 people and injured more than 50 in Baghdad, according to police and medical sources.

Wounded people had been taken to four different hospitals, following the attack in al-Qahira, a northern district of the capital.

It was one of the worst attacks in Iraq since suicide bombers hit the same district two months ago, targeting a Shi'ite Muslim mosque and killing 29 worshippers during noon prayers.
