Suicide bombing targeting Shiites kills 2 in Baghdad

Suicide bombing targeting Shiites kills 2 in Baghdad
A suicide bomb targeting Shiite Muslims killed at least two people in Baghdad on Sunday, a day after the deadliest attack to hit the Iraqi capital in months. 

The bombing in central Baghdad, which targeted a tent where Shiites distribute food as part of annual religious commemorations, also wounded at least four people, officials said. 

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but the Islamic State jihadist group frequently carries out suicide bombings targeting Shiites, whom it considers heretics. The blast came a day after an IS-claimed suicide bombing at a funeral killed at least 34 people.
