Baghdad bombing: twin explosions kill more than 200
The death toll from Saturday's suicide bombing in Baghdad has risen to 200.
A suicide truck bomb ripped through a busy shopping district in Baghdad, killing more than 100 in the heart of the packed Karrada neighbourhood including 25 children and 20 women.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
The mainly Shia area was busy with shoppers when the terrorists struck.
As people congregated, shopped and watched soccer matches, the bomb-laden truck ploughed into a building housing a coffee shop, stores and a gym.
The explosion caused a huge fire on the main street. Several buildings including the popular al-Hadi Centre were badly damaged.
The second bomb also exploded at about midnight in a predominantly Shia area north of the capital, killing another five people.
The bomb blasts in Karrada is the deadliest attack in Iraq in a year and one of the worst single bombings in more than a decade of war and insurgency.
