Baghdad cafe twin bombing attack kills 55

At least 55 people were killed on Sunday in a twin bombing targeting a coffee shop in the Iraqi capital Baghdad, police said.

A suicide bomber blew himself up inside the cafe in the mostly Shiite district of Amil in southern Baghdad. Soon afterwards, another bomb went off in the same cafe.

The attack injured at least 45, reported the independent broadcaster Iraqi Alsumaria TV.

A sharp rise in attacks in recent months has raised fears of a return to the earlier sectarian violence in the country.DPA
