CCTV captures deadly bomb blast in Iraq


On most nights during Ramadan, when temperatures can top 100 degrees, families can be found under the shop's water-misting fans, eating ice cream from wafer cups.

The incident took place when a booby-trapped auto exploded at the busy intersection near al-Shuhadaa Bridge, across the Tigris River, in central Baghdad, Xinhua news agency quoted the ministry source as saying.

"The street was covered in toys, baby bottles, small shoes and men's hats", he told CNN. The victims included children. At the hospital nearby treating the wounded, he saw mothers lying on the floor in grief.

As families, including women and children, began to break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan at a popular ice cream shop in Baghdad, an ISIS vehicle bomber drove into the crowd and detonated its murderous payload. Other videos shared on social media show the scene after the explosion, as dazed children wander around while bodies lying on the ground.

"Every time this happens, everyone is gloomy", said Al Zararee.

A spokesperson from Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has said that latest reports put the death toll from the blast at "over 30 with dozens more injured", while it was confirmed that Al Harbiya's family was receiving consular assistance. IS considers members of Iraq's Shia Muslim majority to be heretics and frequently carries out attacks against them. A baffling disease. And the only way to help her is to hurt her. He vowed to "stand with Iraq against this evil".

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the auto bomb that targeted families eating ice-cream after breaking their Ramadan fast.

The girl, a year seven student from Thomastown in Melbourne, was in the Iraqi capital with her family to visit her sick grandfather. The target of the attack was the "gathering" of Shiite Muslim citizens.
