IS group claims Iraq car bomb attack that killed 19

The extremist Islamic State group claimed responsibility Sunday for a late-night car bomb attack in the heart of Baghdad that killed at least 19 people, saying it was targeting a Shiite militia. The extremist group, however, did not shed any light on accusations by Yazidi lawmakers that it had executed at least 25 prisoners of the minority community in the northern city of Tal Afar. The two car bombs in Baghdad went off about 10 minutes apart late Saturday in the Karrada district, known for its restaurants, cafes and ice cream parlors.
