The commander of an Iraqi army division and other senior officers have been killed in a bomb attack during a security operation in Anbar province.

At least one blast ripped through a house killing 15 officers and soldiers who were taking part in an operation against militants with al-Qaeda links.

It is unclear whether they were attacked by suicide bombers or if the building had been booby-trapped.

Sectarian fighting has made this the deadliest year in Iraq since 2008.
