Iraq Daily Roundup: 32 Killed; Suicide Bombers Strike in Baghdad

At least 32 people were killed, and 117 were wounded in recent violence:

In Baghdad, a double bombing in Tayaran Square left at least 32 dead and 110 wounded. Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi ordered several security changes in the aftermath.

This is the most significant attack in Baghdad since January 2018, when laborers were the target of a pair of suicide bomber in the same area. This time, the attack took place in a second-hand clothing market in the square.

A bomb in Qayara wounded three people.

In Jurf al-Nasr, a bomb wounded two militiamen. A sniper wounded a militiamen.

One person was wounded when a roadside bomb exploded in Abu Ghraib. The blast targeted a Coalition convoy. The nationality of the injured person was not released.
