Vehicle bomb attack kills 15 in Baghdad

World Bulletin / News Desk

 At least 15 people were killed Wednesday and 26 others injured when a vehicle bomb exploded at a checkpoint at the southern entrance this capital city, security sources said.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to media said a number of ambulances have been dispatched to the scene after the incident.

No group has yet to claim responsibility for the attack.

In recent months, bomb attacks -- often featuring explosive-laden vehicles -- have become commonplace in violence-prone Baghdad.

Authorities typically blame such attacks, which frequently target civilian areas, on the ISIL terror group that captured large swathes of territory in northern and western Iraq in 2014.
