Car bomb kills at least 80 including children in Iraqi town of Khan Bani Saad

At least 80 people, including children, have been killed by a car bomb in the Iraqi town of Khan Bani Saad, where people had gathered to celebrate Eid al-Fitr.

In one of the deadliest attacks since Isis extremists seized large swathes of the country, several buildings were brought to the ground.

A number of people who had gathered together to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan were crushed in the collapse, according to police officers and medics.
