Baghdad officials say thirteen people have been killed and thirty others injured in a twin suicide bombing at a crowded commercial area in Iraq’s Capital.
A military spokesman said the bombers blew themselves up at a clothing market in Tayaran Square, in Bab al-Sharqi, as they were pursued by security forces.
It was the first deadly suicide attack in the city since January 2018.
No group has claimed it was behind the blasts, but Islamic State militants have carried out many similar attacks since the government declared its military defeat at the end of 2017.
