BAGHDAD (AP) -- Authorities in Iraq say a car bomb explosion at an outdoor market south of Baghdad has killed seven people.

Police officials say the attack took place Sunday morning in the busy market in the town of Youssifiyah, 20 kilometers (12 miles) south of the capital. They say the blast killed seven people and wounded 16.

A medical official confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to journalists.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the blast.

Iraq is facing its worst crisis since the 2011 withdrawal of U.S. troops as the Islamic State group is in control of about a third of the country. U.S.-led airstrikes now target the militants in Iraq and in Syria.
