Reuters reports that a third bomb exploded in Baghdad on Tuesday, killing at least 19 people and wounding 15 others.

Iraqi police confirm that a suicide bomber detonated a car full of explosives in the market of Sadr City, a Shia district in Baghdad.

Earlier today, 13 people were killed in two bombings on opposite sides of Baghdad. One bomb hit the northern al-Shaab neighborhood and a separate car bomb exploded in the southern neighborhood of al-Rasheed.

Sadr City was previously targeted by Daesh in a suicide bombing on May 11 that killed dozens.
