Also in Iraq, at least 25 people have been killed and another 40 wounded in a car bomb attack in Baghdad.
The bomb, stashed in a parked vehicle, exploded during the morning rush hour at a busy bus station. At least 40 transport vehicles were set alight by the blast.
In a separate incident, three British soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb near Basra in southern Iraq. A fourth soldier was wounded in the attack and taken to a military hospital.
The deaths raise the number of British troops killed in Iraq since March 2003 to at least 154.
