Iraq truck bomb kills dozens at Baghdad market

“At least 59 people have been killed after a truck bomb exploded in north-eastern Baghdad, Iraqi officials say. The blast tore through the crowded Jameela market in the predominantly Shia district of Sadr City. The Sunni jihadist group, Islamic State (IS), said it was behind the bombing and that it targeted Shia militiamen. Meanwhile, medics say more than 20 civilians died when bombs dropped by the Iraqi air force hit a maternity and children’s hospital in Falluja. The city lies west of Baghdad and has been controlled by IS since January 2014. “
