A loud explosion rocked a cafe frequented by Iraqi police near the Australian embassy in Baghdad today, witnesses said.

A Reuters cameraman said there were many casualties at the scene, which was cordoned off by police as ambulances rushed in.

The cause of the blast and the exact number of casualties was not immediately clear.

Police appeared to be having a late evening meal during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.

Insurgents frequently target Iraqi police and National Guards who they accuse of working with US-led forces in the country.

Two mortars were fired at a hotel used by journalists and foreign contractors in the same area of Baghdad earlier today.

This is a cut/paste because the source is reg' req'.
