At least 55 people were killed and more than 60 others injured on Thursday when a massive car bomb went off in western Baghdad, according to an Iraqi federal police officer, Axar.az reports quoting Anadolu.
The attack targeted a car dealership in Baghdad’s western Al-Bayaa neighborhood, Police Lieutenant Yasser Basem told Anadolu Agency
The bombing comes one day after a similar car-bomb attack in Baghdad’s eastern Sadr City suburb - which also targeted a car dealership - that left 12 people dead.
While no group has claimed responsibility for Thursday’s deadly bombing, the Iraqi authorities typically blame the Daesh terrorist group for such attacks.
