BAGHDAD, Iraq – Two suicide bombers detonated themselves near a restaurant frequented by Baghdad police this morning, killing at least 33 people and injuring 19, police said. The blast echoed through central Baghdad at about 9:45 a.m., when police officers frequently stop by for breakfast. Police Maj. Abdel-Hussein Minsef said two bombers attacked the restaurant, killing seven police officers and 26 civilians. Samiya Mohammed, a housewife who lives nearby, said she rushed outside when she heard the explosion. “I went out to see the restaurant heavily damaged. There was bodies, mostly civilians, and blood everywhere inside the place. This is a criminal act that only targeted and hurt innocent people having their breakfast,” she said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
