More than 20 dead in Baghdad twin suicide bombing: Ministry - World News

More than 20 dead in Baghdad twin suicide bombing

The toll in a twin suicide bombing in an open-air Baghdad market on Jan. 21 morning topped 20 dead and 40 wounded, an interior ministry official told AFP.

The ministry said the first suicide bomber had rushed into the market and claimed to feel sick, so that people would gather around him. He then detonated his explosives.

As people gathered around the victims, a second attacker detonated his bomb, the ministry’s statement said.

Military spokesman Yahya Rasool said two suicide bombers detonated their explosives as they were being pursued by security forces.

An AFP reporter at the scene said the bombers had struck a huge open-air market for second-hand clothes in Tayaran Square.

  1. A rare twin suicide bombing killed nearly 30 in central Baghdad on Thursday, Iraqi state media said, the deadliest attack in the city in three years.

    At least 28 people were killed and another 73 wounded in the attack on a huge open-air market for second-hand clothes in the Iraqi capital's Tayaran Square.

    The market had been teeming with people following nearly a year of restrictions imposed across the country in a bid to halt the spread of Covid-19.

    According to an interior ministry statement, the first suicide bomber rushed into the market, claiming to feel sick.

    Once a crowd of people had gathered around him, he detonated his explosives.
