>> Mourners holding a candlelight vigil Sunday night in Baghdad after a suicide bombing killed nearly 120 people and wounded 200 others. Islamic State claiming responsibility. Officials saying a refrigerator truck parked with explosives blew up in the city's Karrada district around midnight on Saturday. The attack coming during the final days of the holy month of Ramadan, many were eating out late, breaking their traditional fast.

A second bomb hit a market in al-Shaab, in the north of the capital, killing at least two more people. The Karrada bombing is the deadliest in the country since last month, when Iraqi forces pushed Islamic State militants out of Fallujah. After a month of fighting, this weekend's blasts mark the third mass killing claimed by Islamic State in the past week, following attacks at Istanbul's main airport, and a restaurant in Bangladesh.
