A car bomb ripped through a popular market in Iraq's northern oil city of Kirkuk on Friday, killing at least six civilians, including two women and a child, a local police commander said.

The vehicle, packed with explosives, blew up at the al-Hurriyah market in eastern Kirkuk, an area cluttered with fruit and vegetable stalls and normally bustling with shoppers, Colonel Sheikh Zad Muferi said.

Dozens of people were wounded in the explosion, with rescue workers rushing to ferry the wounded to hospitals.

Iraqi and American forces sealed off the scene of the attack, Muferi said.
