At least 25 people were killed and around 100 others wounded after a double bomb attack at a football match in northern Iraq on Friday.

The attack took place during a local football game in Tal Aafar, located between the Syrian border and the volatile city of Mosul.

The first bomber waited until the end of the match and then detonated his car bomb amid a crowd of supporters and players near the field's entrance.

In the ensuing panic, two others attackers activated their suicide belts inside the screaming crowd, The Associated Press reports.

The incident came four days after a devastating series of attacks in five cities blamed on Al-Qaeda killed 110 people, in the bloodiest violence this year.
