Iraqi authorities say a bomb at an outdoor market in Baghdad has killed five people.
Police officials say the blast went off on Sunday morning at the crowded market in the primarily Shi’a neighbourhood of Amil in south-western Baghdad.
The police said 12 other people were wounded in the attack.
Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures.
All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorised to speak to media.
Iraq has seen a surge in militant attacks and violence since a deadly April crackdown by security forces on a Sunni protest camp in a northern town.
Ninety people have died in attacks in Iraq so far this month, according to an Associated Press count. - Sapa-AP
