At least 19 people have died after a suicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden car into a security checkpoint in northern Baghdad.

The attack happened on Tuesday in Baghdad’s Shia-majority Khazimiyah district, an Iraqi police spokesman said. The dead included civilians.

The official said at least six police officers were among the victims. Another 35 people were wounded.

The latest incident comes just one day after a series of attacks on Shia-majority neighbourhoods in Baghdad killed 44 people.
