A car bomb blast ripped through a Shiite mosque Thursday in the Kurdish-controlled Iraqi city of Kirkuk where people displaced by attacks on nearby towns had found refuge, police and medics said.

Among the victims of the blast, which killed at least six people and wounded 37, were women and children who had been forced from their homes in Amerli, Bashir and Taza, Dr Mohammed Abdallah from Kirkuk hospital said.
