Baghdad, Jan 15: At least six people were killed and 24 others wounded on Monday in twin bomb explosions, one by a suicide bomber, in the Iraqi capital, officials said.

The attack took place in the morning when a suicide bomber detonated his explosive vest at a crowded site near al-Tayaran Square where many construction workers were gathered, Xinhua quoted an interior ministry source as saying.

Another blast followed when a roadside bomb went off at the scene.

Last week, a suicide bombing in Baghdad killed eight and wounded at least 10 others when the blast struck a northern Baghdad neighbourhood targeting a police checkpoint on a busy street.
