There were conflicting reports of the initial death toll,

with Iraqi officials telling The Associated Press news agency that at least 15 people were killed and up to 65 injured.

But hospital and police sources told Reuters that nine people were dead and about 40 wounded.

Monday's blast targeted the Shia Endowment office - a government-run body that looks after Shia religious sites - damaging its headquarters and a nearby health administration office, police said.

Violence in Iraq has declined, but Sunni armed groups tied to al-Qaeda are still potent. They often attack Shia targets to try to stir up the kind of sectarian tensions that pushed the country close to civil war in 2006-2007.
