Casualties reported after bomb attack in Iraq’s Anbar province

A least 14 people have been killed and over 20 more injured in a bomb blast in Iraq’s western province of Anbar.

The Tuesday attack took place in the province’s city of Hit after a bomber wearing an explosive vest blew himself up close to the al-Shaimaa school.

The area around the school has been cordoned off by security forces. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but it has the hallmark of the Daesh terrorist group.

The recent attack comes just one day after two bomb explosions have hit the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, killing a total of at least 27 people and injuring 100 others just days after the start of the holy month of Ramadan, when Iraqi families often stay out late after breaking their daily fast.
