Twelve people have died after a suicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden car into a police checkpoint in a predominantly Shia neighbourhood of the Iraqi capital.

The officials say the blast took place in the eastern Habibiya district of Baghdad on Monday evening.

They say at least 20 other people were wounded in the attack.

Hospital officials confirmed the casualties.

No-one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing, which came as many Iraqi Shias families were celebrating a major Shia holiday with the city’s streets were especially crowded for the occasion.
