At least 26 people were killed on Tuesday in a car bombing near a military base north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, Al Jazeera reported.

The Doha-based broadcaster added that at least 30 people were injured when the car exploded in Taji, around 30 kilometres north of Baghdad.

Although the level of violence has dropped from a peak in 2006, attacks have become almost daily occurrences in Iraq this year.
