Five people were killed and 12 injured in a bomb explosion on the outskirts of Iraqi capital on Monday, the interior ministry said.

The blast took place near a car repair workshop in the Abu Ghraib area, some 15 km west of Baghdad, it said.

Many people were gathered outside the workshop to have their cars repaired when the explosion occurred.

Despite the security gains in recent months in Iraq, sporadic bombings targeting Iraqi security forces have continued.
