world Updated: Aug 18, 2008 09:31 IST

At least 15 people were killed and 29 wounded when a suicide bomber attacked a checkpoint manned by anti-Al Qaeda fighters here, an interior ministry source said Monday.

The bomber who was on a bicycle blew himself up Sunday night at a checkpoint near a mosque in the Sunni neighbourhood of Adhamiyah, the source said.

Six of the killed and many among the injured were members of the anti-Al Qaeda awakening council, it added.

Sporadic attacks have continued in Baghdad despite the US and Iraqi officials reporting a relative lull in violence during the past months.
