A coordinated attack involving a suicide bombing on a open-air election campaign meeting north of Baghdad killed at least 10 people on Saturday, officials said, two weeks before provincial polls.

A militant had thrown a grenade on the meeting in the restive city of Baquba, 60 kilometres (35 miles) from the Iraqi capital, before a suicide bomber blew himself up, a police colonel and a medic at the city hospital said.

At least 25 people were wounded in the attack.
