Iraq Suicide Bomber Kills at Least 11 in Baghdad

Baghdad

Iraqi officials say a suicide bombing against an Interior Ministry building in central Baghdad has killed at least 11 people.

A police officer says the suicide bomber drove an explosives-laden car into the gate of the intelligence headquarters in Karrada district today afternoon, killing six civilians and five security personnel.

He added that 24 other people were wounded.

A medical official confirmed causality figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorised to brief the media.

Since early this year, Iraq has been facing a growing Sunni insurgency with the Islamic State group and allied Sunni militants who have taken over areas in the country's west and north.

The crisis has worsened since June when the group declared an Islamic state, or caliphate, in territory under its control.
