Blast kills civilian, wounds another in Diyala


Source in Diyala province's Khanaqin district said that an explosion killed a young woman and wounded her brother on Friday.

The source pointed out that an improvised explosive device was planted on the side of one of the district's roads, adding that it exploded when a vehicle carrying the two victims was passing by.

He added that the wounded was transferred immediately to hospital for treatment.

Although Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced full liberation of Iraqi lands and the end of war against ISIS in December 2017, Iraqi cities are witnessing acts of violence as terrorist group's sleeper cells continue to launch attacks targeting civilians and security forces.
