The bombing took place in the town of al-Khales and wounded at least 30 people, the official added. Hospital officials confirmed the death tolls.

Earlier, at least 18 people were killed in car bombings in the capital, Baghdad, and near the southern city of Basra.

No one claimed responsibility for the attacks, although similar attacks have been carried out by Islamic State.
