Twin suicide bombings kill over 20 in Baghdad

Dead bodies all over the Baghdad market as two suicide bombings occurred on Thursday Morning.

According to reports, the explosion rocked a busy market in central Baghdad killing at least 28 people and injuring 73 others.

The ministry said the first suicide bomber had rushed into the market and claimed to feel sick so that people would gather around him. He then detonated his explosives.

As people gathered around the victims, a second attacker detonated his bomb, the ministry’s statement said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, though it bears the hallmarks of Sunni jihadi groups who have carried out numerous similar attacks in Iraq. Double bombings were common in the country during the height of its sectarian war between 2005 and 2007.

“The twin terrorist bombings against the safe citizens of Baghdad at this time confirm the attempts and endeavors by dark groups to target the national needs and aspirations of the Iraqi people for a peaceful future,” Iraqi President Barham Salih said in a tweet. “We stand firmly against these rogue attempts to destabilize our country,” he added.
