At least 21 people have been killed and 42 injured after a car bomb targetting Shia pilgrims exploded in a suburb of Baghdad, Saturday, according to official security and medical sources.

The car bomb was reportedly parked on a road in the suburb of Nahrawan and targetted Shia pilgrims on route to the shrine of Imam Musa al-Kadhim in northern Baghdad. Kadhim was the seventh of 12 revered Imams in Shia Islam and his death in 799 AD is commemorated each year, with thousands expected to travel to the shrine by foot over the coming days.

Iraq's Interior Ministry spokesperson Brigadier General Saad Maan announced that the car was parked on the side of the road in the area of Nahrawan in the Mawashi neighbourhood, southeast of Baghdad on Saturday morning before it exploded, targetting the pilgrims.

The attack coincides with continuing operations carried out by Iraqi forces, with the participation of the Shia People's Mobilisation Forces, to regain control of the areas controlled by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).
