Mosul (Iraq), July 7: A car bomb outside a Shi'ite mosque in a village in northern Iraq killed at least six people and wounded 46 after Friday prayers, police in the northern city of Mosul said.

A source in one of the main Shi'ite Islamist political parties in Baghdad said the blast in the village of Tal Banat, near the town of Sinjar close to the Syrian border, had killed at least 25 people.

But Mosul police said their information put the casualty toll lower.
