Iraq mourns after more than 200 killed in Baghdad bombing

Iraqi men carry a coffin in Najaf during a funeral procession for the victims of a suicide bombing that ripped through Baghdad's busy shopping district of Karrada, on July 3, 2016Iraqis on Monday mourned the more than 200 people killed by a jihadist-claimed suicide car bombing that was among the deadliest ever attacks in the country. The attack sparked anger among Iraqis at the government’s inability to keep them safe even as its forces push IS back, and prompted Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to announce efforts to address longstanding flaws in Baghdad security measures. The attack, which security and medical officials told AFP killed at least 213 people and wounded more than 200, came a week after the country’s forces recaptured Fallujah from IS, leaving Mosul as the only Iraqi city under the jihadist group’s control.
