A huge bomb explosion in the Iraqi capital Baghdad

Baghdad (Iraqinews.com) – Six people were killed and injured Tuesday in a bomb explosion in western Baghdad, a security source was quoted as saying.

Speaking to Baghdad Today news website, the source said, “An explosive charge went off near busy street markets in al-Radwaniyah area, west of Baghdad.”

“The explosion left a citizen dead and five others injured,” the source said, adding that ambulances rushed to the blast site and carried the injured to a nearby hospital for treatment, while the dead was moved to the forensic medicine department.

The Iraqi capital has seen almost daily bombings and armed attacks against security members, paramilitary troops and civilians since the Iraqi government launched a wide-scale campaign to retake Islamic State-occupied areas in 2016.

Though most of the daily bombings go without a claim of responsibility, Islamic State has declared it had been behind many.

A total of 115 Iraqi civilians, excluding policemen, were killed and another 250 injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in Iraq in January 2018, according to casualty figures recorded by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

Baghdad was the worst affected Governorate, with 323 civilian casualties (90 killed, 233 injured).

Diyala followed, with 8 killed and 15 injured; and Nineveh, with 13 killed and 7 injured.

UNAMI has not been able to obtain the civilian casualty figures from the Anbar Health Department for the month of January.
