ISIS bombing in eastern Baghdad kills at least 11

BAGHDAD - A suicide attacker detonated a bomb in a predominantly Shi'ite Muslim district of eastern Baghdad on Monday, killing at least 11 people and wounding 39 others, security and medical sources said, the third such blast in four days in the capital.


Islamic State said it was responsible for the explosion which went off near a cinema in Baghdad al-Jadida. Amaq news agency, which supports the group, said the bomber wore a suicide vest and targeted Iraqi security forces.


The blast set fire to at least five other vehicles on a busy commercial street during evening rush hour, the sources said.
