  Nine killed by Baghdad car bomb
Updated 19 July 2004, 10.10
Scene of the attack
Nine people have died and a further 50 have been injured after a suspected car bomb exploded outside a police station in Iraqi capital Baghdad.

The attack happened at around 8am local time, as people were arriving for work in the Seidiyeh district of the city.

Some witnesses said a fuel tanker drove towards the police building as officers were arriving and then exploded.

The blast was the latest in a series of bombings which have targeted Iraqi police and government officials.

Television pictures from the scene showed a huge crater in the street, and debris scattered over a large area.

Separate attack

In a separate attack minutes later, a rocket-propelled grenade was fired at fire station near the US military compound in Baghdad.
