BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- A suicide bombing Monday -- the second in two months to target the U.N. headquarters in the Iraqi capital -- killed an Iraqi security guard and the bomber, a U.S. military spokesman said.

"A bomb went off from inside of a car, killing two individuals -- one being the bomber," said Capt. Sean Kirley, a U.S. Army spokesman, of the explosion that took place at a checkpoint on the perimeter of the U.N. compound.

"No damage was done to the U.N. building. No coalition forces were killed or injured that we know of, at this point."

Doctors at nearby al Kindi hospital said 16 to 18 people were brought there for treatment following the explosion -- four in critical condition, who were transferred to other hospitals.

Iraqi police officer Wissam Jabar said, "I heard a huge noise. The next thing I was thrown forward two or three meters and saw my leg and my back were covered with blood."
