Iraq: Five killed in spate of Baghdad bombings

By Ibrahim Saleh

 

BAGHDAD (AA): Five people were killed in three separate bomb blasts that shook Iraqi capital Baghdad on Friday, according to a local police source.

Baghdad Police Colonel Salem al-Nuuman told Anadolu Agency that two people were killed — and 11 injured — when a bomb went off near a local market in Baghdad’s southern Al-Yousefiyah district.

Another two people were killed — and another six injured — when a second explosion tore through a market in the city’s southeastern Al-Nahrawan neighborhood, al-Nuuman said.

A fifth person was killed in Baghdad’s western Al-Ghazliya district, the police officer added, by a bomb that had apparently been planted in his vehicle.

While no group has claimed responsibility, the Iraqi authorities typically blame the Daesh terrorist group — which overran much of the country in mid-2014 — for attacks on civilians.
