At least 14 people were killed and 33 others injured when a car bomb ripped through a packed market in Baghdad's Al-Shaab district on Tuesday, an Iraqi interior ministry source said.

Several women and children were among the dead in the attack, which targeted a mixed Sunni-Shiite area of the capital.

Gunmen fired on the crowd just before the bombing and fled, leaving behind a car, which then exploded, the source said.
