A car bomb killed at least ten people in a crowded commercial area of western Baghdad on Wednesday, police said.
The blast occurred in Baiyaa, a mixed neighborhood, just after the morning rush hour, police said. At least 20 people were wounded, they said.
Baiyaa is one of Baghdad's most popular shopping districts, with hundreds of stores and kiosks.
Witnesses said several shops and stalls were damaged, and four cars were incinerated by the explosion. Charred clothes hung from vendors' stalls.
