U.S. Embassy Condemns Attacks in Baghdad

The United States condemns the February 28 bombings claimed by Da’esh of a market in Sadr City, Baghdad, which killed over 70 people and wounded more than 100. We also condemn Da’esh’s attack on security personnel in the Baghdad neighborhood of Abu Ghraib.

We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this horrifying and senseless violence and reaffirm our commitment to support the Iraqi people and Government of Iraq as they work to defeat Da’esh.
