At least eight people were killed on Wednesday when a suicide bomber strapped with explosives attacked a crowd of labourers in central Baghdad, an Interior Ministry source said.

Hospital sources said at least 65 people were wounded.

"We were eating breakfast and we heard an explosion. We went to see what happened and we saw people torn apart on the pavement," said Mohammed Daoud, a labourer.

The attack took place in New Baghdad. Police sources said earlier the explosion hit the Baab al-Sharjee area of Baghdad.

Insurgents waging a campaign to topple the government have killed many thousands of security forces and civilians.
