Two bombs explode in Baghdad

Two bombs exploded in Baghdad, targeting a bank and a shop where alcoholic beverages are sold.

A bomb left by unidentified people exploded in front of the Cihan Bank building in El Wathiq square in the neighbourhood of Karrada.

According to security sources, a security guard of the bank was injured and property damage occurred to the front of the building.

It was reported that a second explosion occurred in front of a shop where alcoholic beverages are sold near the National Theater in the same neighbourhood. In recent years, places where alcoholic beverages are sold have been the target of attacks on a regular basis. Nobody has been arrested so far.

While no one claimed responsibility for the last two attacks, the authorities launched an investigation.
