A US soldier guards a military base in Iraq
Forty one American soldiers have been injured after a suicide bomb went off in northern Iraq, the US army said.

It happened when a car failed to stop outside a US army base in Tal Afar, near Mosul, and the soldiers there opened fire on the vehicle.

The car bomb went off after they fired shots at it, leaving soldiers with injuries like cuts and broken bones.

The attack happened when the car drove up to the 101st Airborne's 3rd Brigade on Tuesday morning.

There are also unconfirmed reports that a US helicopter has crashed in Falluja, west of Baghdad.

Earlier on Tuesday, an explosion went off at a Sunni mosque in Baghdad, leaving three people dead and two injured.
