Suicide bomber kills seven in Baghdad market: officials
The blast in the Baghdad Jadida area of the capital’s east also wounded at least 30 people
A suicide bomber detonated explosives in a Baghdad market on Monday, killing at least seven people, Iraqi security and medical officials said.
The blast in the Baghdad Jadida area of the capital’s east also wounded at least 30 people, they said.
Brigadier General Saad Maan said the suicide attack hit a perfume shop in the area, while other officials only said that it targeted a market.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but ISIS frequently carries out suicide bombings in Iraq.
ISIS overran large areas north and west of Baghdad in 2014, although Iraqi forces have since regained significant ground from the militants.
The militants still control a large part of western Iraq, and they are able to carry out frequent bombings in government-held areas.
