Major Islamic State attacks in Baghdad

May 30, 2017 | Society

A car bomb hit a popular ice cream shop in the Karrada neighborhood just after midnight, killing 17 people, including three children. The next evening, another bomb killed 14 people in the Shawaka neighborhood near a central shopping area.

Around lunchtime on Saturday, a suicide bomber struck a Shiite gathering in a crowded market, killing at least 41 civilians and injuring at least 33. The attack took place inside a tent in the Shaab neighborhood of Baghdad.

It was one of the deadliest attacks in Baghdad since July, when a car bomb killed about 300. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack in an online statement.
