At least 45 people have been killed in a car bombing in a mostly Shia area in Baghdad, a security official said Thursday.
Forty-nine people have been injured in the explosion in Baghdad’s south-western district of Bayaa, the spokesman for the city’s security agency added in a statement.
There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack yet.
The radical Sunni Daesh group previously took credit for similar attacks in Baghdad and other parts of Iraq.
US-backed Iraqi forces are fighting to dislodge Daesh from its key stronghold of Mosul in northern Iraq.
