At least 80 people have been killed in a car bomb blast in a predominantly Shia town of Khan Bani Saad in Iraq, said officials.
According to BBC, the blast came as the people celebrated the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
The children were also among those killed in the explosion.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for the attack.
A statement from ISIS said that one of their members drove three tonnes of explosives into the crowd.
