Car Bomb Kills 13 In Baghdad

At least 13 people have been killed, and more than 50 others wounded, following a car bombing, claimed by Islamic State militants, in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

A suicide car bomb blast claimed by Islamic State killed at least 13 people and wounded more than 50 others at a vegetable market in eastern Baghdad on Sunday, police and medical sources said.

The attacker drove the car through a gate to the market in the mainly Shi’ite district of Jamila, and detonated the bomb after security forces opened fire on the vehicle, a police source said.

Islamic State claimed the attack in an online statement, saying the bomber had targeted “a gathering of Shi’ites” in the area.
