Three killed in Baghdad suicide bombing

Baghdad, March 29 (IANS) At least three people were killed and 15 injured on Tuesday in a suicide bomb attack in downtown Baghdad, a police officer said.

The toll could rise as many were critically injured.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but such suicide attacks in densely populated areas such as markets, cafes and mosques across Iraq are conducted by the Islamic State (IS) militant group.
