Four dead in Baghdad car bombing

A car bombing in the Sadr City district in Baghdad left four people dead and 17 wounded Thursday, Reuters reported.

Iraqi police said that the bomb was in a car parked at a busy second-hand equipment market in the Shi’ite Muslim district, according to the Reuters report.

Videos of the incident showed black smoke rising from the market area.

No group immediately claimed responsibility.

It was the second bomb attack in Baghdad this year after a pause in such attacks since 2017, Reuters reported. ISIS militants claimed to have bombed a crowded Baghdad market in January, killing 32 people.
