One person was killed and two others were injured when a vehicle carrying a tribal militia exploded in Hur Rajab area, southern Baghdad.

Two other people were killed and eight were injured in other bomb attack near a bazaar in Abu Ghraib district, in Baghdad’s west.

Two shells fell on Saba al Bur area and killed one person, injuring seven others.

Iraq has been facing a security vacuum since June 2014 after ISIS stormed the northern province of Mosul and extended its territories in the region inside Syria.
