Eight people were killed and 18 others wounded, on Sunday, when a booby-trapped school building detonated, near the newly-liberated city of Tal Afar, west of Mosul, a local official in Tal Afar, said.

The incident occurred in the morning, in the school building, in the village of Mjareen, leaving five paramilitary fighters and three civilians killed, and 18 people wounded, member of Tal Afar city council, Tariq Egrish, told Xinhua.

The school building was used by the paramilitary tribal fighters, as a training centre, Egrish said.

Egrish did not give further details, on whether the bombs were newly planted, or were left from the former presence of the Daesh militants in the city.

Explosive experts were sent to check and remove explosives in Tal Afar, left by the Daesh militants, as the city and its surrounding areas were liberated from the Daesh on Aug 31, declared by Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi
