The car blew up near a market on the outskirts of Al-Kadhimiyah, a western district of the city.


Also in Baghdad, gunmen killed Mahmud Ahmed, the brother of a top Sunni Arab politician, Tariq al-Hashemi.


Al-Hashemi, a member of the Iraqi Islamic Party, has been talked of as a possible speaker of the incoming parliament.
