    One week after the recapture of the city of Falluja from ISIS militants, a bomb went off in a busy street in Baghdad at night where there was a large Shia Muslim population killing 125 people of which at least 15 were children, and injuring 150.
    The death toll is expected to rise.

    A second bomb was also detonated killing a further 5 people.

    3 days of national mourning were declared.
