A bomber strapped with explosives has blown himself up on a bus in central Baghdad killing at least 12 people, while explosions elsewhere in Iraq killed at least another eight people.

The attack on the bus in the mostly Shia Muslim al-Kadhimiya district on Monday also wounded at least nine people, sources said.

Earlier during the day, an explosion occured shortly before 8am near Liberation Square in al-Bab al-Sharqi area in Baghdad where a group of men were waiting near stands serving tea and sandwiches.

Lieutenant Ali Mutib said the blast killed at least four workers and wounded 14 other people, including one policeman.

Husain Muhammad Naama, who sells snacks and drinks to such workers, said a man bought a cup of tea and left a black plastic bag near his street stand.

"He drank his tea and left the bag near the stand. I went to a nearby restaurant to get water and then the bag exploded," Naama said.

"We don't know what to do; we need a solution. We can't live like this."

Cars destroyed

At least three shop fronts were blown out and several cars destroyed.

Labourers were waiting for work
when the blast occurred

Workers swept up shattered glass and pools of blood that covered the street.

One worker, Said Isa, 28, said: "We want to live, but the government doesn't care about us. The Americans and the police are only protecting themselves while nobody protects us."

Impoverished Iraqi workers have been targeted previously. On 1 February, a bomb killed eight men waiting for day labour in a largely Shia area of Baghdad.

Mosul blast

In Mosul, a man with explosives concealed under his clothing entered a restaurant at about 7.30am and blew himself up among people eating breakfast, said Captain Muhammad Khalil and hospital official Dr Ahmad Khalid.

Five people were killed and five others wounded, police and hospital sources said.

The blast devastated the Abu Ali restaurant, which is popular among Iraqi policemen working in Mosul, 360km northwest of Baghdad.

Blood and body parts were sprayed over the walls and floor, parts of the ceiling had collapsed and chairs and tables were obliterated by the force of the blast.

The owner, who identified himself only as Abu Ali, said: "Police were eating their breakfast and suddenly there was an explosion."

Macedonians freed

Two kidnapped Macedonian contractors were released on Monday in the southern city of Basra, a British official said.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity as he was unauthorised to comment to the media, declined to say
how the men were released or where they currently were.

The two men worked for a Macedonian cleaning company at Basra International Airport and were abducted on Thursday.

Their kidnappers demanded a $1 million ransom from their employers. It was unclear if any ransom had been paid.
