Man wounded by a suicide bomber in Tuz Khurmato city is carried to a hospital in Kirkuk, 250 km (155 miles) north of Baghdad, June 25, 2013.

A suicide bomber killed three people and wounded 27 in central Baghdad on Tuesday morning, a police source said.

The blast took place near a group of workers in Tayaran Squeare, about a kilometer from a sit-in held by supporters of Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr to demand political reforms.

No organisation claimed the attack but all suicide bombings carried out so far this year in the country have been claimed by DAESH, the terrorist group which controls parts of northern and western Iraq.
