- At least 28 killed, 53 injured in double suicide attack
- Attackers targeted a busy commercial street in the heart of Baghdad
Two suicide bombers carried out the attack in the center of the city Saturday, according to Gen. Saad Maan, a spokesman for Baghdad Operations Command.
At least 53 were wounded in the twin explosions in al Sinag street, a historic thoroughfare in central Baghdad.
So far, no claims of responsibility have been made for the attack.
Iraq — and particularly its capital, Baghdad — has long suffered at the hands of suicide bombers.
In July a suicide truck bomb ripped through a busy shopping district in the city, killing over 200 people, according to the deputy head of the security committee of the Baghdad Provincial Council, Mohamed al-Rubaye. That body count made it the deadliest single attack in some years.
