A suicide bomber has struck in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Thursday, killing at least 46 people in a restaurant on a Muslim holiday.

Another 100 were wounded, in what is the worst attack in Iraq for months.

It appeared to be the worst attack in Iraq since 63 people were killed by a truck bomb in Baghdad on 17 June.

Muslims are celebrating Eid al-Adha, a four-day religious holiday.
