The bomb went off near a cafe in the sprawling neighborhood, killing 10 people and wounding 25, according to police.

Debris was being cleared on Thursday morning after Wednesday night's car bombing in the sprawling Shiite neighborhood Sadr City of Baghdad the Iraqi capital.

Local residents and shop owners were on Thursday morning inspecting the damage to their properties.

No one claimed responsibility for the attack, though Sunni militants were suspected.

The extremist ISIS group, which seized some part of country in a lightning offensive over the summer, has claimed responsibility for similar previous attacks.

In Syria ISIS now are in control of more than one-third of the Syrian border town of Kobane after pushing back its Kurdish defenders, Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told AFP.

The advance of IS fighters came despite intensified US-led air strikes aimed at preventing Kobane from falling into the hands of the Terrorists.
