At Least 45 Killed in Baghdad Car Bombing

BAGHDAD—A car bomb ripped through a commercial area in a predominantly Shiite neighborhood of Baghdad on Wednesday, killing at least 45 people and wounding dozens, in an attack that was swiftly claimed by Islamic State.

The explosion hit a crowded outdoor market in the Iraqi capital’s eastern district of Sadr City, two police officials said, adding that the blast also wounded up to 65 people—several seriously—prompting fears that the death toll could rise further. Several cars and nearby buildings were also heavily damaged, they said.

Shortly after the explosion, one of the deadliest recently in the Iraqi capital, Islamic State—which sees Shiite Muslims as apostates—said it was behind the assault. The Sunni extremist group said the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber, but Iraqi officials have denied that.

Four medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they aren’t authorized to release the information to reporters.
