A car bomb killed at least 22 people and wounded 54 more when it exploded at a Baghdad bus station on Saturday, a security official said.

The bomb occurred in the Shi’ite district of Kadhimiya in northwestern Baghdad, where people typically gather at a major Shi’ite mosque on Saturdays, said Major-General Qassim Moussawi, spokesman for security operations in Baghdad.

The U.S. military said the blast took place just after noon. Women and children were among those killed, police said.
