Bagdhad [Iraq], Jan 16 (ANI): The death toll in twin suicide bombings in Iraq's capital Baghdad on Monday has risen to 38, the local media reports.

Iraq officials confirmed the death toll.

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)
