Suicide blast kills 13 at Baghdad ice cream shop

MNA International Desk: A suicide bomber detonated an explosives-rigged vehicle at a popular Baghdad ice cream shop, killing at least thirteen people, security officials said on Tuesday.

The overnight attack in the Karrada district in central Baghdad also wounded at least 30 people, officials said.

The Islamic State group-linked Amaq propaganda agency said the suicide bomber targeted a ‘gathering of Shiites.’

IS considers members of Iraq’s Shiite Muslim majority to be heretics and frequently carries out attacks against them, reported news agency.

The bomber struck just days after the start of the holy Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, during which Iraqis often stay out late shopping or socialising after breaking their daily fast.
