At least four people killed in new suicide attack against Shia in Baghdad

A suicide bombing targeting Shia Muslims killed at least four people in Baghdad on Sunday, officials said, a day after the deadliest attack to hit the Iraqi capital in months.

The bombing in central Baghdad, which targeted a tent where Shias distribute food as part of annual religious commemorations, also wounded at least 12 people, officials said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but Daesh group frequently carries out suicide bombings targeting Shias, whom it considers heretics. The blast came a day after a Daesh-claimed suicide bombing at a funeral killed at least 34 people – the deadliest attack in Baghdad since another Daesh suicide bombing left more than 300 dead in early July.
