25 killed in twin suicide attack in Baghdad

At least 25 people have been killed while 63 others were severely wounded in a twin suicide bombing in central Baghdad on Monday, the Iraqi health ministry said on its Facebook page.


The attack targeted Aviation Square, a commercial area of Baghdad, the interior ministry said in a statement. It was carried out by two men who detonated vests packed with explosives, it said.

Iraq declared victory last month over the Islamic State group that took control of nearly a third of Iraq three years ago, but the militants continue to carry out attacks and bombings in different parts of the country.
