Baghdad [Iraq], January 15 (ANI): At least 16 people were reportedly killed and several others injured in twin suicide bombings in Iraq's capital Baghdad on Monday.

The explosions took place in central Baghdad's Tayaran Square which is usually crowded by labourers seeking work, local media reports said.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.

The blasts come after Iraq's security forces recently retook nearly all the territories once held by the Islamic State (ISIS). (ANI)
