Car bombing kills 2 in Iraqi capital

World Bulletin / News Desk

At least two people were killed in a car bombing in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Tuesday, according to a local police officer. 

A car-bomb exploded inside a car shop in central Baghdad, captain Nazhan al-Khodar told Anadolu Agency. 

“The bombing killed two people and injured nine others,” he said. 

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. 

In recent months, devastating bombings -- frequently featuring explosive-packed vehicles -- have become an almost daily occurrence in Iraq’s violence-prone capital. 

The Iraqi authorities typically blame such attacks, which often target civilian areas, on the ISIL terrorist group, which is facing a major offensive by the Iraqi army to oust it from the northern city of Mosul.
