Car Bomb Kills 16 In Baghdad

At least 16 people have been killed, and more than 40 others wounded, following the detonation of a car bomb, in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

A car bomb in Baghdad’s Sadr City neighborhood killed at least 16 people on Wednesday and wounded more than 40 others, Iraqi police and hospital sources said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack in a bustling market during the morning rush, but Islamic State militants battling government troops in the country’s north and west regularly attack Shi’ite civilian areas in the capital.

The death toll is expected to rise, as rescue efforts continue.
