At least 12 people were killed when the car they were travelling in collided with a train in southern Baghdad, a provincial police source said on Monday.

"A car carrying 12 members of a family collided on Sunday afternoon with a train coming from the southern city of Basra to Baghdad at the level-crossing of Hindiyah area near the Hilla City, 100 km south of Baghdad," the source said.

Train service in the capital, stalled since the US-led invasion in 2003, had resumed on December 16.

According to Iraqi officials, the resumption of the service became possible after the security situation improved in the country.
