Death toll from Baghdad blast rises to 250 - Iraq's Health Ministry | Reuters


BAGHDAD The death toll from a massive suicide bombing in Baghdad over the weekend has reached 250, Iraq's Health Ministry said on Tuesday.

The attack, claimed by Islamic State militants which the government is battling in the country's north and west, was the deadliest of the many car bombings in Baghdad since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion.
