A suicide attack on an Iraqi gas factory near Baghdad has killed at least 11 people and wounded many others, officials say.
Early on Sunday a car blew up at the entrance of the facility in Taji, a northern suburb of the capital.
Six attackers wearing explosive vests then entered the plant, where they clashed with security forces.
Officials blamed the attack on the Islamic State (IS) group, which holds parts of western and northern Iraq.
