Two Suicide Bombings in Baghdad Result in 28 Dead

What Happened:

  • On Thursday, two suicide bombings struck Iraq's capital of Baghdad resulting in at least 28 deaths and dozens wounded.

  • The attack occurred in the busy Bab al-Sharqi area in central Baghdad.

  • No one has claimed responsibility for the attack thus far, but, Iraqi officials believe it is the work of the Islamic State group.

  • The bombings occurred just a few days after the Iraqi government agreed to hold early elections in October. With the economy in a shambles, tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets last year to demand political change and an end to corruption.
