Iraq shop attack leaves 10 dead
At least 10 people have been killed in a bomb attack south of Baghdad, Iraqi police say.

They said the bomb had been planted outside a shop in Iskandariya, a predominantly Shia town about 40 km (25 miles) from the capital.

At least three other people were injured in the overnight blast.

Sunni Arab insurgents have been waging a campaign of bombings and shootings in an effort to overthrow the Shia-led Iraqi government.
