Car bombing kills 9 in Iraqi capital


(MENAFN- The Journal Of Turkish Weekly) At least nine people were killed and 30 others injured in a car bombing in Iraqi capital Baghdad on Tuesday, according to a security and medical source.

A car-bomb exploded at a marketplace in al-Rashidiya, a Shia-majority district in northern Baghdad, Interior Ministry official Nazim al-Zamili told Anadolu Agency.

Health official Ihsan Radi said nine people were killed and 30 others injured in the attack.

'A number of the injured are in a critical condition,” he said.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the bombing.

Tuesday";s attack came one week after a car bombing killed more than 290 people in a Shia district in Baghdad.

The fallout of this attack included the resignation of Iraqi interior minister Mohamed al-Ghalban and the sacking of a number of top security officials.

Iraq has suffered a devastating security vacuum since mid-2014, when Daesh captured Mosul and overran large swathes of territory in the northern and western parts of the country.
