The death toll from the Baghdad bomb attack has reached 175 as more bodies have been recovered from the site.

A so-called Islamic State suicide bomber struck the busy commercial area of Karrada on Saturday night, as people came out to shot and eat after breaking their daily fast during Ramadan.

Iraqi police said people were still missing and the death toll could rise further.
