Dozens of people were injured in Monday’s bombing.
According to Al Jazeera television, the bodies of people who had gone to buy goods after the blast bodies were scattered in the market. Most of the dead were women and children.
It is the largest bombing in Iraq in six months. The terrorist group IS has claimed responsibility for the blast. He said the device was connected and detonated, killing one of its members.
