At least 18 killed, 90 wounded in Baghdad explosion – police sources

Earlier in the day, Iraq's parliament voted in favour of a full recount of some 11 million ballots cast in the May 12 vote.

A total of 172 parliamentarians attended the session presided by Salim al-Jubouri, the parliament speaker. The council ditched the leadership of the election commission and made a decision to annul votes from Iraqis out of the country.

Iraq's highest judicial authority, the Supreme Judicial council, had said this week that the courts could not force the IHEC to conduct a manual recount because the law stipulated the use of electronic vote-counting devices.

According to Saadoun, 173 lawmakers of the outgoing 328-seat parliament ordered the recount for votes from all polling stations - meaning nearly 11 million ballots.

Iraq's prime minister says a commission looking into alleged irregularities in last month's national elections has found "dangerous violations", a development that could prolong the process of forming a new government.

"The committee has revealed risky things, honestly".
