Children are reported to be among the victims of a suicide bomber who blew his car up outside a boys' school in the Iraqi town of Falluja.

At least five people including the bomber died in the attack.

Falluja is 30 miles from the capital city of Baghdad, where at least 35 people were killed and 200 injured in a wave of car bombings on Monday.

Luckily, classes had finished at the Falluja boys' school and the building was closed when the bomb went off.

But it appears that some kids got caught up in the explosion.

It took place 100 metres from the town's police station.

In the Baghdad attacks on Monday, three police stations were targeted as well as a building used by the Red Cross.

Many supporters of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein live in Falluja and there have been frequent clashes in the town involving US troops.
