Suicide blasts kill 28 in Baghdad

In Iraq, 28 people were killed and ninety others injured in twin suicide blasts at Tayyaran Square in central Baghdad on Monday.

The attack targeted Aviation Square, a commercial area of Baghdad, the interior ministry said in a statement. It was carried out by two men who detonated vests packed with explosives, it said.

Iraq declared victory last month over the Islamic State group that took control of nearly a third of Iraq three years ago, but the militants continue to carry out attacks and bombings in different parts of the country.
