    The main responsibility for security across the province rests with Iraqi forces, although US troops have a low-key presence there.

    The attack at the livestock market was the most deadly single bombing since 35 Shia pilgrims were killed by a suicide bomber south of Baghdad last month.

    Thursday's bombing comes a day after a string of attacks against Iraqi police officers, soldiers and the leader of a armed group left at least 11 people dead.
