At least 38 people were killed in a double suicide bombing in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Monday, according to Al Jazeera.

It was also reported that more than 100 people were also injured in the attack in Tayaran Square in the city center.

Two bombers blew themselves up at the morning rush hour in the square, police captain Ahmed Khalaf said.

The Iraqi interior ministry earlier said 16 people had been killed in the attack.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack.

Monday’s bombing is the deadliest since the Iraqi army dislodged ISIS from northern and western Iraq last year.
