BAGHDAD - A car bomb explosion killed at least 15 people and wounded 25 on Thursday in Iraq's predominantly Shi'ite southern city of Hilla, medical and police sources said.

A suicide bomber rammed his car into the entrance of a police headquarters in Hilla, 100 km (60 miles) south of Baghdad, during a shift change when many police officers were outside the building, the sources said.

An Interior Ministry source in Baghdad put the toll at 16 killed and 50 wounded.
