Car bomb hits Iraq's Basra, at least 10 killed

BASRA, Iraq (Reuters) - A car bomb exploded near a petrol station in the southern
Iraqi city of Basra on Friday killing at least 10 people, police said.

A Reuters cameraman at the scene said he saw several bodies.

Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki last month declared a state emergency in Basra, Iraq's
second largest city, which has been gripped by violence.
