At Least 59 Dead in Baghdad Bombings

At least 59 people were killed and 95 wounded after militants attacked an outdoor market in Baghdad on Sunday, according to Iraqi officials. A bomb went off in the Mredi market in the Shiite district of Sadr City just minutes before a suicide bomber blew himself up nearby, the AP reported. The ISIS-affiliated Amaq news agency later claimed responsbility for the twin bombings. Officials said the deadly attack came just hours after security forces drove back ISIS militants in the capital’s western suburb of Abu Ghraib. At least 12 members of the security forces were killed in the Abu Ghraib violence after suicide bombers and gunmen launched an attack.
