Iraq: Vehicle bomb attack kills 15 in Baghdad

By Haydar Hadi

 

BAGHDAD (AA & The Musilm News): At least 15 people were killed Wednesday and 40 others injured when a vehicle bomb exploded at a checkpoint at the southern entrance this capital city, security sources said.

A booby-trapped vehicle – an oil tanker laden with explosives – was exploded at a crowded marketplace at the predominantly Shia Muslim neighbourhood of Amil.

The massive explosion destroyed several nearby shops and many stalls, along with damaging several nearby civilian cars and buildings.

No group has yet to claim responsibility for the attack.

In recent months, bomb attacks — often featuring explosive-laden vehicles — have become commonplace in violence-prone Baghdad.

Authorities typically blame such attacks, which frequently target civilian areas, on the Daesh terror group that captured large swathes of territory in northern and western Iraq in 2014.
