Over 20 people were killed leaving many others injured following a car bomb explosion in Iraqi capital Baghdad.

The blast went off in a market in the mainly Shia Amil district in the south-west of the city, reports say.

No group has said it carried out the attack but so-called Islamic State has in recent months carried out many similar bombings.

The attack comes as government forces try to recapture Mosul from IS.
