Iraq: 63 people dead in bombings claimed by Islamic State terrorist group


Three bombings killed at least 63 people Tuesday in Baghdad. More than 100 are reportedly injured, as Iraq enters a second consecutive week of mass bloodshed.

The attacks are continuant with other recent strikes on predominantly Shiite areas of the Iraqi capital.

The Islamic State group took credit for a suicide bomb in a marketplace in the northern district of al-Shaab that killed 38 and wounded more than 70. The area is predominantly Shiite. Agents for the self-declared caliphate also took credit for a car bomb attack in Sadr City that killed at least 19 and wounded 17. Sadr City, also mainly Shiite, was ravaged by attacks last week.

Thirdly, there was another car bomb in the mixed Sunni-Shiite Baghdad neighborhood of al-Rasheed that killed six and wounded at least 21. A military spokesman said it was a suicide attack, as well.

Islamic State group attacks killed more than 100 last week in Baghdad. Swaths of Iraqi territory are claimed and occupied by the Sunni group. There are emerging concerns about a renewal of outright sectarian civil war in the country.
