At Least 27 Dead After Isis Car Bomb Targets Families During Ramadan

At least 27 people have been killed after two Isis car bombs targeted crowds at the end of their Ramadan fast.

The first explosion took place in the Karrada district of southern Baghdad outside a popular ice cream shop, just after midnight. At least 15 died and 27 were wounded, according to the Independent.

The incident was caught on CCTV, in which a huge fireball can be seen engulfing a building, while cars attempt to get away.

Other clips, uploaded to social media following the attack, show people running away, screaming for help.

A second blast, hours later, during rush hour in the busy Shawaka district is reported to have killed at least 12 and injured 23 more.

The attacks happened just a few days into the holy month of Ramadan, which sees Muslims fasting during daylight hours and then breaking fast with families and friends during the night.

Isis has claimed responsibility for both attacks through its Amaq news agency.
