January 8, 2017
BAGHDAD - A car bomb blast killed at least 12 people and wounded 50 others at a vegetable market in eastern Baghdad on Sunday, police and medical sources said. The explosion hit the mainly Shi'ite district of Jamila, the sources said. Islamic State claimed a suicide bomb attack that police and medics said killed 13 people at a vegetable market in eastern Baghdad on Sunday. The group said in an online statement that a suicide car bomber had detonated his explosives in the Jamila area. A series of attacks in the Iraqi capital and other cities in just over a week has killed dozens of people. Several have been claimed by Islamic State, which is coming under increasing pressure from a U.S.-backed offensive in Mosul, its last major stronghold in Iraq. -Reuters
