In Iraq, at least 55 people have been killed and over 60 injured in a car bomb blast in Baghdad.


The incident happened when a car packed with explosives blew up near car dealerships in southern Baghdad. The Islamic State group claimed the attack.

The extremist group has carried out near-daily attacks in Baghdad.

Earlier, at least 24 people were killed in other attacks on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The US State Department condemned the attack at the car dealership, saying such attacks show the extremist group's "utter contempt for human life and its efforts to sow discord and division among the Iraqi people."
