At least five civilians were killed in a car bomb blast in Iraq's Tikrit on Sunday, police and medical sources said.
The car had been parked close to a restaurant in the northern city, about 175 kilometers north of the capital Baghdad.
Three of the dead were women, the sources said, and another 16 people were wounded.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
Tikrit spent nearly 10 months under Islamic State group rule before Iraqi security forces retook it in the spring of 2015.
