AT least 42 members of Iraq’s security forces have been killed in a suicide bombing on an army base north of Fallujah in Iraq.

According to Al Jazeera, the attack was carried out on Monday June 1, 2015 with an explosives-laden armoured Humvee vehicle, which exploded near a weapons depot at the base.

Witnesses said ammunition stored in the depot continued to explode several hours after the initial attack, which occurred at local time on Monday. Local officials said the death toll of the attack was likely to rise.
