An Iraqi hospital official said that 9 people have been killed and 15 injured in a Thursday morning explosion outside government offices in western Iraq.

A government official from the Anbar province, where the blast took place, blamed the attack on a suicide bomber.

The explosion happened at the gate of a compound that includes the provincial governor's office, police headquarters and courts.

A police official put the initial casualty count at 6 dead and 10 wounded.

Anbar's governor was badly wounded in an assassination attempt in late December.
