A car bomb has exploded in Iraq's holy city of Karbala, leaving at least five people dead and 11 others wounded.

The incident took place in central Karbala near the house of Karbala Governor Aqil al-Turaihi on Tuesday, Iraq’s al-Maalomah news agency reported.

Iraqi sources said the bombing occurred five kilometers away from the shrines of the third Shia Imam, Imam Hussein, and his brother Hazrat Abbas.

No individual or group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet, but Iraqi officials usually blame such incidents on the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group, which has been wreaking havoc on Iraq's northern and western parts since June 2014.

The latest figures released by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq show a total of 867 Iraqis were killed and 1,459 others injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in May.

According to the UN mission, the number of civilian fatalities stood at 468. Violence also claimed the lives of 399 members of the Iraqi security forces.

A great portion of the fatalities was recorded in Baghdad, where 267 civilians were killed. Iraqi army soldiers and fighters from Popular Mobilization units are seeking to win back militant-held regions in joint operations.
