14 Killed In Baghdad Suicide Bombings


Two suicide bomb attacks in central Baghdad have killed at least 14 people.

Iraqi officials said both attacks on September 17 targeted police checkpoints in commercial areas of the Iraqi capital.

One bomber struck in Baghdad's Bab al-Sharji area, killing eight civilians and a police officer there. Twenty-one were wounded in that explosion. The second bomber hit in al-Wathba Square, killing five people, including two policemen, and wounding 12.

No group has yet to claim responsibility for the attacks, which were similar to those carried out by Islamic State militants.
