Reuters reports that two blasts at a casino in eastern Iraq have killed at least 20 and wounded 50.

A suicide bomber detonated a vest full of explosives inside a casino in Muqdadiya, 50 miles northeast of Baghdad. According to Reuters, a car bomb exploded outside as medical personnel gathered to tend to the wounded after the first blast.

This attack comes two hours after a car bomb exploded and gunmen invaded the Jawaher mall in eastern Baghdad.

No group has claimed the attacks. Iraqi security forces are responding to both situations.
