Baghdad : 32 dead in twin suicide blasts

Iraq’s deadliest since 2018, happens as country prepares for polls in an Open-air market attack killing at least 32 people and wounded some 110

The attack occurred in a huge open-air market for second-hand clothes in the Iraqi capital’s Tayaran Square.

As people then flocked around the victims, a second attacker detonated his bomb. Suicide bombings had been commonplace in Baghdad during the sectarian bloodletting that followed the United States-led invasion in 2003.

The latest twin attack was not immediately claimed, but suicide bombings have been used by extremist Islamist groups, most recently by ISIS.
