At least 15 people were killed and 20 others were wounded in a double suicide bombing in the center of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, Iraqi TV reported, citing security sources.
The sources said that one of the bombers blew themselves up in Tayaran Square, while the other detonated their device in the “Bab al-Sharqi” market in central Baghdad.
The sources noted that ambulances had rushed to the scenes of the explosions to transport the dead and the wounded to nearby hospitals.
According to police sources, the death toll could increase as some of the wounded were in critical condition.
The Iraqi security services cordoned off the two bombing sites, while also reportedly closing the entrance to the Green Zone.
