Up to 12 people have died in a suicide car bomb attack in a morning of chaos in Iraqi capital Baghdad.

At least four policemen were among those who died after they stopped the suicide bomber near a US military base.

Earlier, a senior official in the country's ministry of education was killed by unknown gunmen at his home.

The attacks came on the same day as the US-led coalition headquarters was hit in a suspected rocket attack. There were no casualties.

The bomb went off outside a base of the 1st Cavalry Division. At least 13 people were injured. Two police cars and eight civilian cars were badly damaged.

The man who was assassinated, Kamal al-Jarrah, was the second government official to be killed in as many days.
