BAGHDAD, Feb 9 : A suicide bomber attacked a Shiite-majority area of north Baghdad on Monday, killing at least 22 people, security and medical officials said.
The blast in Kadhimiyah, which is home to a revered Shiite shrine, also wounded at least 43 people.
The bomber struck near vendors selling goods on the pavement in the district's crowded Aden Square, an AFP correspondent reported.
Blood stains were still visible on the ground.
It is the second suicide bombing to hit the capital in three days. On Saturday, an attack inside a restaurant in the Baghdad Jadida area killed at least 23 people.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the Monday attack, but suicide bombings are a tactic almost exclusively employed by Sunni extremists in Iraq, including jihadists of the Islamic State group.
IS spearheaded an offensive that swept through large areas north and west of Baghdad last June.?AFP
