Baghdad: At least 21 people were killed and 53 others injured on Thursday in twin suicide bombings at a crowded market area in Baghdad, according to Iraqi officials.

No group has claimed responsibility for Thursday’s bombings yet

A suicide bomber blew up his explosive belt in a crowded market in Bab al-Sharji area, and a second one detonated his a few minutes later in the same market, an Interior Ministry source said.

Meanwhile, the source added that ambulances and civilian cars have evacuated the wounded to nearby hospitals and medical centres.
