Death Toll Rises to at Least 200 in ISIS Attack on Baghdad

At least 200 were killed—though authorities say that number could still rise—following an ISIS attack on a crowded shopping area this weekend in Baghdad.

On Saturday night, a suicide truck bomb detonated in the Karrada neighborhood, where hundreds of people, including many children, were gathered to eat, shop, watch soccer and prepare to celebrate the end of Ramadan this week. The neighborhood is mostly Shiite. The radical terrorist group ISIS, who is Sunni, considers the fellow Muslims ideological enemies.


The bombing, and another one on Sunday which killed one person and injured five others, come after the U.S. and Iraqi forces were able to gain back control of the city of Falluja, which is just 40 miles from Baghdad.
