8:49 pm on 26 December 2011

At least six people have been killed in a suicide car bomb attack outside Iraq's interior ministry.

More than 30 people were also injured in the attack.

There are fears that the death toll could rise further.

On Thursday, a series of bombings killed nearly 70 people in the capital.

The attacks follow the withdrawal of the last US combat troops from the country after nearly nine years of military engagement.
