At least 21 people were killed and more than 50 injured in a suicide bomb attack on a market in central Baghdad on the 21st local time, Iraqi security sources said, according to Agence France Presse in Baghdad.
The report quoted a military spokesman as saying that two suicide bombers detonated their bombs when they were pursued by security forces.
No one has claimed to have made the attack, according to Reuters in Baghdad.
Since the defeat of the extremist group “Islamic state” in 2017, suicide bombings have rarely occurred in the Iraqi capital, the report said.
The report quoted a spokesman for the Iraqi Interior Ministry as saying that the death toll may rise because some of the injured are seriously injured.
