70 Killed in Two Baghdad Bomb Attacks

Baghdad, February 29 (RHC)-- Two bomb attacks at a crowded market in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, have killed at least 70 people, police and medical sources say.  The bombs, which also injured 100 people, went off in the mainly Shia Muslim district of Sadr City on Sunday.  Daesh Takfiri militants claimed responsibility for the blasts.

Police said the death toll could rise.  Earlier in the day, Daesh Takfiri terrorists launched their largest attack in months on the outskirts of the capital, Baghdad, killing at least a dozen Iraqi forces.  Security officials said the terrorists carried out bombing and shooting attacks against a barracks housing security forces in Baghdad's suburb of Abu Ghraib, which is 25 kilometers west of the city center, on Sunday.  At least 12 security forces were killed and 35 others wounded.
