A car bomb exploded in the northern Iraqi city of Tal Afar on Friday, killing at least 22 people and wounding 26, police said.

The explosion, which occurred outside a car dealership, was the first major attack by suspected insurgents since the deadly bombings in the Sadr City slum in Baghdad killed more than 200 people on Thursday.

The explosion in Tal Afar, which is 150 kilometers east of the Syrian border and 420 kilometres northwest of Baghdad, occurred at about 11 am.
