A suicide bomb at a cafe in central Iraq has killed at least eight people and wounded another 25, officials say.

The blast happened in the town of Balad, about 80km (50 miles) north of the capital Baghdad.

There have been a number of attacks on Iraqi cafes in recent weeks, during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

More than 60 people alone were killed during celebrations for Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, earlier this week.
