The death toll from an attack by a suicide bomber driving a fuel truck packed with explosives in western Baghdad on Wednesday rose to 50 people, police said.

Another 60 were wounded in the attack in Mansour district. Police said the bomber lured motorists queueing for petrol to his truck after earlier saying he had rammed into the line of vehicles.
