SAMAWA (Web Desk) – At least 32 people were killed and up to 75 others were wounded in a double car bomb attack in Iraq’s city Samawa on Sunday.

The first car exploded near government offices, while the second exploded minutes later at an open-air bus station about 60 metres away.

Unverified online photographs showed a large plume of smoke rising above the buildings, as well as burnt out cars and bodies on the ground at the site of one of the blasts, including several children.

Meanwhile, IS has claimed responsibility of the attacks.
