    The bombing was the second to target markets in the capital in 24 hours.

    An explosion at the al-Nidawi market in northeast Baghdad on Monday killed 11 people and wounded more than 33, security and defence officials said.

    Earlier, in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, two bystanders died in a car bomb  apparently aimed at killing a local police commander.

    Adil Zenaid Abideen, a police colonel, said: "Those killed included a woman and among the wounded are three children and five policemen. The police chief escaped the attack."
