BAGHDAD: Iraqi security officials say a motorcycle rigged with explosives went off near a Shiite mosque south of the capital Baghdad, killing three people and wounding 34.
The officials said Saturday that the blast occurred the previous evening on a commercial street in the village of Mussayyib. They spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.
Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it targeted “gatherings of Shiites” near a Shiite mosque.
