The South African government is following up information that two South African contractors were killed in a suicide bomb blast in Baghdad on Monday.

"We have noted this development with regret. However, as government, we have not yet confirmed the veracity of the report, primarily because we don't have a diplomatic mission in Baghdad at this stage.

"Nonetheless, we are following up the matter through a South African mission {that is} nearest to Iraq," Department of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa said.

The two South African contractors were killed when a suicide bomber blew up a booby-trapped car outside the Green Zone, a high-security area in Baghdad, the AFP news agency reported.
