A twin suicide bombing killed at least 28 people at a Baghdad market on Thursday, according to the Iraqi state media. 75 people were reportedly injured and at least seven are missing.

After the two bombers were pursued by security forces they are said to have detonated their devices at the Tayaran square market. The second explosion took place after witnesses gathered to assess the damage following the first blast, according to an interior ministry spokesperson.

No-one has claimed the responsibility for the suicide blasts which have become rare in the Iraqi capital since the defeat of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) in 2017.
