BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say a second car bombing in Baghdad has struck an outdoor market in the city’s south, killing at least five people there.

The explosion hit a fruit-and-vegetable market in the Shiite-dominated neighborhood of Dora. The bombing followed the attack on an open-air market in the capital’s northeastern Shaab neighborhood earlier on Tuesday that killed at least 16 people and wounded 45.

The police say the Dora explosion also wounded 15 people.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, which bore the hallmarks of the extremist Islamic State group that has been behind recent deadly attacks in the Iraqi capital and beyond.
