The attack came two days after a suicide bomber blew himself in Aden Square, close to the mainly Shia district of Kadhimiya, north of Baghdad, reported Kurdistan24 news.

No group has claimed responsibility for these attacks. This is the first suicide bombings this year in Iraq.

The twin explosions shocked residents in the Iraqi capital because large attacks had decreased significantly in Baghdad and other parts of the country since security forces retook nearly all territory once held by IS militants.

Iraqi and US officials have warned that IS would continue with insurgent-style attacks even after the Iraqi military and US-led coalition succeeded in uprooting the Islamic State group across the country.

Iraq declared victory last month over the Islamic State group that took control of nearly a third of Iraq three years ago, but the militants continue to carry out attacks and bombings in different parts of the country.
