At least five people were killed and up to 10 were wounded in a suicide bomb blast outside a Baghdad hospital.

The bomber attacked security forces at the entrance of the Numan hospital in the capital's northern Adhamiya district, say Iraqi police.

Reports say the bomber, travelling in a car, rammed into army vehicles in front of the hospital.

Militants have stepped up their attacks in recent weeks in a bid to destabilise Iraq's new Shia-led government.
