A suicide bomber set off hidden explosives inside a public bus in downtown Baghdad on Friday, killing at least five people and wounding eight, police said.
The blast occurred as the minibus was parked at a bustling bus station in the capital's Baghdad's Al-Tayaran square, police Maj. Mohamed Younis said, according to the AP.
The bomber used a belt of explosives strapped to his body beneath his clothes, Younis said.
The attack came just as many Muslims in Iraq were heading to mosques around the city on Friday, their day of worship.
