At least 11 people have been killed and 28 wounded following twin car bomb blasts outside a shopping mall in eastern Baghdad, police and hospital officials have said.

Three Iraqi police are understood to be among the dead following the explosions near Nakheel mall just before midnight on Friday.  

A parked car is believed to have been the source of one explosion, while the second was caused by an explosives-laden vehicle driven by a suicide bomber, a police colonel told AFP.

The death toll is expected to rise and reports from Reuters suggest 12 people have been killed and more than 40 others wounded.
