Suicide bomber kills six in Baghdad

Follow @sky_naija on Twitter

A suicide bomber killed six people
in western Baghdad on Sunday, a
security spokesman said, a day after
bomb and gun attacks hit a city
north of the capital.

The bomber detonated an
explosive belt in the Iskan area,
also wounding 18 people,
according to a statement from
security spokesman Saad Maan.

There was no immediate claim of
responsibility for the attack, but the
Islamic State group frequently
carries out suicide bombings
targeting both civilians and security
forces in Baghdad and other parts of the country.

The Baghdad attack came a day
after militants killed 12 people in
gun and bomb attacks claimed by IS
in the city of Tikrit.

Iraqi forces are preparing for a push on Mosul, the last IS-held city in the country, after regaining much of the territory the jihadist group seized in June 2014.

But even as it loses ground, IS
retains the ability to carry out deadly attacks in government-held areas, and is likely to increasingly turn to such insurgent tactics if it loses Mosul.
