    Thirteen other people, including nine policemen, were wounded in the attack early on Sunday morning.

     

    The latest bombing comes less than 12 hours after a bomber blew up a gas tanker in the town of al-Musayyib, killing 60 and wounding 85.

     

    The Iraqi capital has been hit by a blitz of bombings over the past two days which has left dozens of people killed and scores injured.
