Baghdad: In yet another terrorist attack, three car blasts in Baghdad – Capital of Iraq – have killed at least 88 people and wounded many others.

The first of the three blasts hit an outdoor market on Wednesday morning in the northern district Sadr City, killing at least 63 people and injuring 82 others. Sadr City is predominately a Shiite locality.

“Our associate Abu Sulaiman al-Ansari detonated the explosive vehicle,” said Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in an online statement, claiming responsibility for the attacks.

It was followed by a suicide blast at a police station in Kadhimiyah, another Shiite Muslim district in the northwest of the Iraq’s Capital.

Eighteen people were killed in the blast, including five police officials. Another 34 people were injured.

Later, in western Baghdad, a suicide car bombing killed seven and wounded 22.

"These are cowardly terror attacks on civilians, who are of no harm to anyone. Their only fault is going about their normal daily lives," said Jan Kubis, the top envoy of the United Nation (UN) in Iraq.
