A suicide bomber detonated a vehicle rigged with explosives at a police checkpoint in central Iraq on Monday, killing 10 people, an officer and a medical source said.
The blast, which hit the Suweirah area, south of Baghdad, also wounded 35 people.
The attack came a day after violence in Iraq, including a suicide bombing at a university in Baghdad, killed at least 16 people.
The violence comes less than 10 days before the April 30 parliamentary election and will be a major test for security forces.
