A suicide bombing attack killed at least eight people in the Jameela marketplace area in Sadr City (Baghdad) on Thursday, May 9. The assailant reportedly blew himself up while surrounded by security forces. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the blast. 

Similar attacks are possible in Baghdad over the near term.

Context

Individuals in Baghdad are advised to monitor developments, avoid the affected area, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.

The security environment in Iraq remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to all travel.
