Suicide car bomb kills at least 15 in Sadr City suburb of Baghdad: Security sources
A suicide bomber detonated a pick-up truck on Wednesday in Sadr City, a heavily populated poor Shia suburb of Baghdad, killing at least 15 and wounding 50, security sources said.
 
The explosion, the deadliest in Baghdad so far this year, targeted a crowded street full of garages and used car dealers.
 
Islamist militants has stepped up bombings in Iraq last year, in retaliation to a U.S.-backed campaign that dislodged the hardline Sunni group from most Iraqi cities it took over in 2014. The militants also control parts of neighbouring Syria.
