A "sticky bomb" underneath a bus carrying Iranian pilgrims was detonated on Saturday, killing at least five passengers and wounding at least 9, according to Iraqi officials.
The passengers were reportedly travelling to a shrine in Baghdad for the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday (Feast of the Sacrifice).
"The blast exploded around 300 meters from our checkpoint. The bus went out of control, hit another car, and flipped over on its side," said a police officer at the scene, Reuters reported.
