At Least 22 Dead In Baghdad Attacks


At least 22 have been killed in bombings across the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

At least 13 were killed in a car bombing in the predominantly Shi’ite district of Habibiyah near Sadr City in an area where people gather to buy and sell vehicles.

Elsewhere in and around the capital, a series of bombings killed at least nine other people on August 15.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Islamic State militants have recently launched a series of bombings in Baghdad and other provinces, targeting Shi’ites.

On August 13, at least 62 people were killed in the same area when a massive truck bomb ripped through a crowded food market shortly after dawn.

Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for that attack.
