Two suicide attackers targeted Iraqi police checkpoints in commercial areas in central Baghdad during rush hour on Thursday, killing at least 21 people, officials said.
Both attacks were carried out by bombers on foot, wearing explosives-laden vests, two police officers said. One bomber struck in Baghdad’s Bab al-Sharji area, killing nine civilians and three police officers there. Forty-five people were wounded in that explosion.
