December 31, 2016: Baghdad

Two bombings claimed by the Islamic State killed at least 28 people and injured 54 in central Baghdad on Saturday, according to The Guardian.

The attacks happened “as fighting intensified in the northern city of Mosul, where government forces are trying to rout the jihadists from that city, their last major stronghold in the country. The blasts, including one suicide attack, tore through a busy market in the Sinak neighborhood, the police said. A pro-Islamic State news agency said the assailants had targeted Shiite Muslims, whom they regard as apostates” (The New York Times).
