Ten people were killed and more than 20 injured in an explosion in eastern Baghdad, according to medical and security sources.
The blast occurred in a garage near a football stadium and bar on Saturday when an explosive device attached to a vehicle exploded, causing another nearby tanker to explode, security sources said.
Most of the victims were amateurs playing soccer in the neighborhood stadium.
An army statement claims that an oil tanker exploded in a garage east of Baghdad killing a number of people and that security forces are investigating the cause of the explosion, without providing further details. .
