ISIS Claims Baghdad Bombing That Killed More Than 200
It’s getting worse. After recent battlefield losses, the so-called caliphate has been focusing on terror attacks: 45 were killed at Istanbul’s airport last Tuesday, 22 died in a Bangladesh café siege on Friday, and at least 200 perished in Saturday’s Baghdad car bombing that targeted Iraqis as they gathered to break their Ramadan fast and watch soccer. The blast ripped through the Karrada neighborhood, injuring hundreds and strengthening public protest against Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi. Iraq has declared three days of mourning while rescue crews begin clearing debris.
