Another 53 killed in Iraq

BAGHDAD: At least 42 people were killed on Wednesday as a motorcycle rigged with explosives detonated in Baghdad’s Sadr City and militants targeted mostly Shia neighbourhoods around the country, while another 11 people were killed across the country.
The motorcycle was parked in a second-hand market in the Shia Muslim neighbourhood that sells used bikes and was filled with people, mostly young men, when it exploded late Thursday afternoon, killing 31 and wounding 51 others, Iraqi medical and police sources said. Blood covered the ground, storefront windows were shattered and shoes and motorcycle parts were strewn around the market, according to a Reuters’ correspondent at the scene. Dozens of people were screaming for information about their relatives.
