Twin suicide bombing kills 13 in Baghdad market

1 Mins read

At least 13 people have been killed and 30 others injured in a twin suicide bombing at a crowded commercial area in Iraq’s capital, Baghdad, officials say.

Military spokesman, Yahya Rasool said two suicide bombers detonated their explosives at a clothing market in Tayaran Square, in Bab al-Sharqi, as they were being pursued by security forces.

Medical sources told AFP they feared the death toll could be twice as high as officially announced.

The health ministry said it had mobilised medics across the capital to respond to the deadly attack. 

It was the first deadly suicide attack in the city since January 2018.

No group has claimed it was behind the blasts. But Islamic State militants have carried out many similar attacks.

The jihadist group’s sleeper cells have continued to operate in sparsely-populated areas of Iraq since the government declared its military defeat at the end of 2017.
