A suicide bomb in central Baghdad this morning killed at least nine people and injured 20, police said.
The attacker detonated an explosive vest near Tahrir Square in the centre of the city.
The attack comes as the federal government battles a Sunni militant-led insurgency from the north of the country.
The Foreign Secretary has been clear on the threat of Isis, but he has ruled out the prospect of any UK military involvement in the crisis.
Iraq’s foreign minister, Hoshyar Zebari, is a natural diplomat. Polite, immaculately dressed, and blessed with a great memory.
Isis has paraded military equipment in Mosul it captured from when the Iraqi army fled in what some see as a "nightmare scenario."
