At least 32 people were killed in the attack on a crowded Baghdad marketplace.

The United Arab Emirates has strongly condemned the two terrorist bombings that targeted a market in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, which led to the deaths and injuries of a number of innocent people.

In a statement, the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation stressed that the UAE expressed its strong condemnation of these criminal acts and its permanent rejection of all forms of violence and terrorism aimed at destabilising security and stability in contravention of religious and humanitarian values and principles.

The ministry also expressed its sincere condolences to the families of the victims and wished a speedy recovery to the injured.

At least 32 people were killed on Thursday when two men blew themselves up in a crowded Baghdad market in Iraq’s first big suicide bombing for three years.

At least 110 people have been injured.
