ISIS bombings killed dozens in Baghdad on Saturday


At least 121 people and 212 were injured in two bombings in Baghdad, Iraq Saturday night.

A car bomb exploded near a busy shopping center, and a second bomb exploded in a largely Shia part of the city, the BBC reports.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack via an online statement.

This comes a week after Iraq declared the city of Fallujah "fully liberated" from ISIS, which had controlled the city since 2014.

The shopping center was crowded with shoppers socializing in juice bars and cafes as the holy month of Ramadan neared its end, the BBC reports.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi visited the blast scene on Sunday, but his convoy was chased off by angry crowds, some of them throwing stones and bricks.
