Two children were among seven people killed in a Baghdad neighborhood during an explosion

Two children were among seven people killed in a Baghdad neighborhood when a minibus filled with explosives detonated on a crowded street.

 

The explosion happened in a predominantly Shiite neighborhood on Wednesday wounding at least eighteen people, including four children. Authorities reported that the minibus was detonated near the district government office.

 

At this point no one has claimed responsibility for the attack but authorities believe the Islamic State group that has conducted numerous daily attacks against the Shiite population could have committed this horrible act.
