The second blast on Tuesday was also a car bomb attack, security officials.

Earlier on Monday, at least 13 persons have died after a car bomb exploded outside an ice cream parlour in Baghdad, Iraq. A large explosion in the central Karrada district rocked the Iraqi capital late Monday night. According to Iraqi officials, the bomb was placed inside a parked car and remotely detonated.

Last year, Baghdad was rocked by a huge truck bomb that targeted a popular retail district in the city center. The Islamic State had claimed responsibilty for the first attack, which came as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan got under way.
