A suicide car bomb targeting a busy section of Iraq's capital city on Monday killed at least 13 people and possibly wounded dozens more, authorities said. 

An officer in the Baghdad Police Directorate who spoke to NBC News on the condition of anonymity put the death toll at 15 and the number of wounded at 47. 

It came just days after the beginning of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims fast during the day and fill Baghdad's cafes at night.
