At least 45 people were killed and 150 wounded in a car bomb blast near a police station and courthouse in Iskandariyah, 40km south of Baghdad, on Tuesday, according to reports.
The BBC quoted Iraqi police and US military officials as saying that it was apparently a suicide attack.
The BBC's Stephen Sackur said an angry crowd gathered at the site of the blast and anti-American slogans could be heard.
