|Iraq army centre blast kills 12 |
(about 2 hours later)
At least 12 people have been killed in a bomb blast at an army recruitment centre in the Iraqi town of Hilla, Iraqi police have said.
Some 38 others were wounded in the attack, 90km (65 miles) south of the capital, Baghdad.
Initial reports suggest the bomb was attached to a bicycle or motorcycle and exploded at about 0800 (0400 GMT).
Hilla, the capital of the mixed Sunni and Shia province of Babel, has been frequently targeted by insurgents.
About 125 people were killed by a suicide car bomber in Hilla in February 2005 in the bloodiest single attack in Iraq since the US-led invasion of 2003.
Wednesday's blast is the latest in a series of attacks which have killed dozens of people across Iraq since the weekend.
