Baghdad, the capital city of Iraq, was rocked by multiple terror attacks Saturday shortly before U.S.-backed Iraqi forces were expected to launch a ground and air offensive on the Islamic State stronghold city of Mosul.
The multiple attacks largely targeted Shia Muslims in the Iraqi capital, where a suicide bomber detonated an explosive vest inside a crowded funeral tent filled with mourners, claiming the lives of at least 30 people and injuring more than 60, according to the Associated Press.
A witness told AFP that the suicide bomber entered the tent around lunchtime. IS immediately claimed responsibility.
