BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraqi officials say a suicide bombing at a cafe in a Baghdad neighborhood has killed 28 people and wounded 45 others.

Police officials said the attack Sunday night saw a suicide bomber ram his explosive-laden car into a busy cafe in Baghdad's primarily Shiite Amil neighborhood.

Police said that the cafe and nearby shops were damaged in the attack.

Violence has been on the rise in Iraq following a deadly crackdown by security forces on a Sunni protest camp in the northern town of Hawijah in April. Places such as cafes, markets and mosques are favorite targets for insurgents in Iraq

Hospital officials confirmed the casualty figure. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to media.
