A car bomb killed at least eight people and wounded at least 25 in a crowded vegetable market in a Shi'ite Muslim district of Baghdad on Monday (August 28), police and medics said.
No group immediately claimed responsibility, though the Sunni Muslim militants of Islamic State have said they carried out a string of other recent attacks in the capital.
The car rigged with explosives detonated in the eastern district of Jamila, police said, as Iraqi government forces were preparing to declare victory over Islamic State more than 400 km (250 miles) further north in the city of Tal Afar.
It was not immediately clear if a suicide bomber had driven the vehicle to the target or if it was a parked car bomb, police sources said.
