A car bomb blast in a market in a mainly Shi'ite district of eastern Baghdad killed at least 10 people and wounded more than 20 on Thursday, police said.

They said they were investigating whether the blast was a suicide attack and what the intended target was.

The blast mangled several market stalls and scattered wreckage across the area. Thick black smoke hung over the scene.

The blast followed a series of suicide bomb attacks on Wednesday that killed at least 71 people.
