Deadly blast in Iraq city kills 33

AFP

Three explosions, two of them suicide bombings, killed at least 33 people near Baquba, the capital of Iraq's restive eastern province of Diyala yesterday, reports AFP. The deadliest blast was a suicide car bomb attack in a market area of Huwaydir that killed at least 20. Another suicide car bomb went off in Kanaan, killing 10, and a third explosion killed three in Wathba, the sources said. There has been no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
Last year, the city was the scene of fierce fighting between so-called Islamic State (IS) militants and pro-government militias. Government forces managed to push them back from the city which is just 60km (37 miles) from the capital, Baghdad.
