A massive explosion targeting a mourning procession in Baghdad's Jaderiye district has left at least 6 people dead and 21 others injured, Al-Alam News Network correspondent in Iraqi capital said.

According to the Arabic-language al-Sumaria TV network, a bomber detonated the explosives among the participants in the mourning congregation on Sunday, also injuring 21 people.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the Sunday blast.

It came just a day after a similar incident claimed the lives of over 50 people in al-Sha’ab district, north of Baghdad. The Takfiri Daesh terrorist group said it was behind the Saturday bombing.

Iraq has been the scene of a campaign of terror by Daesh.

Last week, at least nine people lost their lives after a bomber set off his explosives in the east of the Iraqi capital.

The Takfiri group unleashed its campaign of death and destruction against the country in 2014, seizing the northern city of Mosul and declaring it as its so-called headquarters. A large and multi-faceted operation is due to liberate the city.
