At least 14 people – including women and children – have been killed by an ISIS suicide car bomber at a checkpoint in Iraq.
A police officer at the scene said most of the victims died inside their vehicles while waiting to enter the town of Khalis, about 80 km (50 miles) north of Baghdad. Eight policemen were killed.
‘We still have charred bodies inside many vehicles including a minibus packed with women and children,’ the police captain said, requesting anonymity.
The blast comes a day after ISIS claimed responsibility for a suicide bomb attack on another security checkpoint in Baghdad.
At least 21 people – including four police officers – were killed in Sunday’s attack.
