Triple Suicide Attack In Iraq

Triple Suicide Attack

A triple suicide attack near a Shi'ite mausoleum in Iraq kills at least 35 people and wounded 60 others. The attack took place on Thursday, the 2nd day of the Eid al-Fitr festival. It's the latest incident in a bloody week in Iraq. A suicide bombing struck the heart of Baghdad on Saturday. The toll from the attack is still rising and it's now at 292 dead. It was the deadliest explosion since US forces toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003. Iraq's PM Haider al-Abadi has sacked Baghdad's top security officials over the incident. The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for both attacks.
