As yet there is no word on who carried out the bombing in Sadr City.

At least 15 people were killed when a suicide bomber detonated a pick-up truck full of explosives in Baghdad’s Sadr City, a heavily populated Shiite-majority suburb, on Wednesday.

Another 50 people have reportedly been wounded.

The explosion, the deadliest in Baghdad so far this year, targeted a crowded street full of garages and used car dealers.
