In a recent incident in South Baghdad, a suicide attacker blew himself up in a market south of the capital Baghdad on Friday. Police officials said that the incident killed at least 21 people while five others were wounded in another bombing in a nearby city.

This year, hundreds of people died in the explosions which occurred in Iraq. Responsibilities of much of the attacks have been claimed by ISIS.

According to officials, the blast which occurred at Friday morning in a village market killed 21 and left 30 wounded.

Head of Security Committee in the Sourthern province of Babil, Falah Khafaji said, “It was a very ugly incident. The attack occurred as people were out shopping during Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting”.

The blast came hours after a bomb exploded in the Shia holy city of Karbala near Mussayyib, wounding five people. Shortly after the two blasts occurred, the ISIS-linked Aamaq News agency said the group was behind both attacks. It said both were carried out by suicide attackers wearing explosive vests.
