Baghdad, Sep16: A suicide bomber killed six people and wounded 18 at an outdoor cafe in the northern Iraqi town of Tuz Khurmato today, police said. Last evening a suicide car bomber killed 10 people and wounded 15 others in southwest Baghdad. Many were queuing outside a bakery to buy bread for the evening Ramadan meal.

The cafe was one of the few in the religiously and ethnically mixed town, 180 km north of Baghdad, which was serving food during daylight hours in the holy month of Ramadan, when observant Muslims fast from dawn to dusk. The bomber was wearing a belt filled with explosives and blew himself up at the cafe, police said.

The bombing came a day after an al Qaeda-led group, the Islamic State in Iraq, announced a new phase of attacks to mark Ramadan, which started late last week.
