Death toll from Baghdad’s twin suicide attacks rises to 40
At least 40 people were killed and more than 100 others wounded after the suicide bomb attack in Baghdad, the capital of Iraq.
Two suicide bombers detonated their explosives near an open-air market near al-Tayaran Square in the Bab al-Sharqi neighborhood, Baghdad Operations Command said.
“The second suicide bomber blew himself up, after people gathered to transport the injured who were caused by the first bombing,” Iraq’s Interior Ministry said.
No group claimed the attack immediately, but suicide attacks have mostly been used by ISIL (ISIS).
