Bombs in Iraq's Mosul kill 1 person, injure 17

February 28, 2019 - 11:05 AM

BAGHDAD - Iraqi security officials say two bombs have exploded in the city of Mosul, killing one person and wounding 17 others.

The first explosion, a road side bomb, went off Thursday in an area southwest of Mosul near a vehicle belonging to the Popular Mobilization Forces, a coalition of predominantly Shiite militias, wounding four.

Another car bomb went off near the cultural centre, killing one person and wounding 13, the officials said.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. There was no immediate claim for the bombings, the latest in a string of attacks along roads and in villages in areas north and west of Baghdad.

The Islamic State group has claimed many of them. Iraq claimed victory over the organization in 2017 after a four year war.
