A car bomb killed at least 21 people near the Iraqi capital security officials have said, according to AP. The bomb targeted a Shiite open air market in Nahrawan. Terror group Islamic State claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.

The attack targeted Shiite civilians who were attending a market, which sold livestock, fruit and vegetables, Iraq’s Interior Ministry said. Earlier Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and local officials said the bombing had targeted Shiite pilgrims who were making their way to the Imam Musa Kadhim shrine.

“It was not a road for people walking toward Kadhim,” said Brig. Gen. Saad Mann, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry and Baghdad Operations Command, according to AP.
