Reuters reports that two suicide bombings in a shopping mall in eastern Baghdad killed at least 12 people late Friday night. 

According to security sources, Daesh has claimed the attack on Nakheel Mall. One bomb detonated at the front of the mall, and the other exploded in the parking lot.

At least 40 were wounded in addition to those killed, hospital sources report. 

The attack comes two days before the Eid al-Adha holiday. At the start of Eid al-Fitr in July, over 200 people were killed in Baghdad in a string of suicide attacks.
