Iraq: Suicide bombers hit wedding in Saladin, kill 23

By Othman al-Shalash

 

SALADIN, Iraq (AA): At least 23 people were killed and another 20 injured when two blasts tore through a wedding in Iraq’s Saladin province north of Baghdad, according to a local police officer.

“Suicide bombers targeted a wedding held by the Albu Nemr tribe in the Jazirat al-Hajjaj region west of Baiji city,” Ahmed Mohamed told Anadolu Agency.

Located some 280 kilometers north of capital Baghdad, Baiji is home to Iraq’s largest oil refinery.

No terror group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, though in the past Daesh has been involved in terrorist attacks.
