Car Bomb Kills at Least Seven in Iraqi Capital

Baghdad, April 28 (RHC)-- At least seven people have been killed in a car bomb attack in a southwestern neighborhood of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. Iraqi officials confirmed Monday that at least seven people, all of them civilians, were killed after a car bomb went off in Baghdad’s Bayaa district.

The attack took place in a busy commercial area where the explosives-laden vehicle was parked. At least 16 other people, many of them had gathered in a real estate office near the scene of bombing, were wounded. Medical sources have confirmed the casualties of the bombing, which is the latest in the string of attacks targeting Baghdad’s citizens.

In four separate explosions earlier, at least 13 civilians were killed and dozens of others were injured in various parts of the city. Two were killed and five were wounded in Bayaa district alone.

The attacks, mostly blamed on the ISIL Takfiri group, are mainly meant to undermine the Iraqi governments’ ongoing battle against the terrorists in north and west of the country.
