Baghdad car bomb kills at least 15: ministry official

Baghdad car bomb kills at least 15: ministry official

BAGHDAD: A car bombing on Monday evening in the Iraqi capital Baghdad killed at least 15 people and wounded 33, an interior ministry official told AFP.

The blast happened at around 7:00 pm (1600 GMT) in the busy business district of Hay al-Amel in the west of the city, he said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the explosion, which bore all the hallmarks of a suicide attack by the IS group.

Iraqi government forces backed by the US-led international coalition have retaken many cities, including Tikrit.

But as IS has lost ground in Iraq, it has also retained the ability to stage regular attacks there.
