Suicide bomb attack kills seven in Baghdad market - police, medical sources

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A suicide bomber blew himself up in a crowded marketplace in eastern Baghdad on Sunday, killing at least seven people and wounding over a dozen others, police and medical sources said.

The attack in the mainly Shi‘ite district of Baladiyat was the second bomb attack to hit the Iraqi capital on Sunday. A suicide car bomb claimed by Islamic State at another market killed 13 people earlier in the day.
