Baghdad: Iraqi officials say a suicide attack south of Baghdad has killed at least 14 people. A police officer says the suicide bomber blew himself up on Monday inside a restaurant in Dhi Qar province that is frequented by Shiite paramilitary militia fighters.

He added that at least 27 others were wounded in the attack that targeted a famous restaurant on the main highway that links Baghdad with the southern provinces.

Dhi Qar is located about 200 miles (320 kilometers) southeast. A medical official confirmed the causality figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorised to release information.
