Two More Explosions Killed Another 25 in Baghdad


Baghdad: Two separate car bombs have killed at least 25 people in Baghdad just hours after the Iraqi capital endured its worst single bombing of the year.

The explosions hit the Kadhimiya and Jamea districts, while earlier today a pickup truck packed with explosives and disguised as fruit truck slaughtered another 64 people in Sadr City.

It brings the total death toll of all three attacks to 89 and marks an unprecedented 24 hour period of bloodshed in the capital so far this year.

The initial bombing, which occurred outside a beauty salon in a packed marketplace in Sadr City, was claimed by ISIS and was the city’s single worst bombing of 2016.
