Spate of bombings kill 24 across Baghdad

A spate of bombings across Baghdad killed at least 24 people on Saturday, two days after the deadliest attack in the Iraqi capital since Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi took office one year ago. The deadliest attack took place in the Shi’ite district of Habibiya, where 15 people were killed when a car bomb exploded near an open area where cars are displayed for sale. “The investigation, based on footage from a surveillance camera, showed a man parking a white car and sneaking into a nearby tea kiosk. Five minutes later the car exploded,” said police officer Murtatha Abid Ali at the scene of Saturday’s explosion, which wounded a further 35 people.
