Suicide bombers kill 32 in Baghdad

World | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 22 Jan 2021

A rare twin suicide bombing killed more than 30 in central Baghdad yesterday, the deadliest attack in the Iraqi capital in three years.

At least 32 people were killed and another 110 wounded in the attack on an open-air market for second-hand clothes at Tayaran Square.

An interior ministry statement said the first suicide bomber rushed into the market, claiming to feel sick. Once a crowd had gathered around him, he detonated his explosives.

As people then flocked around the victims, a second attacker detonated his bomb, the ministry said.
