THE suicide bombing in Karrada shopping district in Baghdad, Iraq is the latest incident in a recent string of violent terror attacks to occur in the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The attack that took place this past weekend has claimed the lives of at least 125 people.
In Dhaka, Bangladesh, some 20 hostages were taken when six terrorists attacked a cafe in an exclusive neighbourhood on 2 July. The attack left 20 people dead, including two police officers and six terrorists. While the Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the attack, these claims have been refuted by Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan. He attributes the attacks to local militant group Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB); JMB has claimed to represent IS, but no links have been found between the two thus far.
The gun and bomb spree on June 28 at the Atatürk airport in Istanbul, Turkey left 41 people dead.
Here are the scenes from the aftermaths of these terror attacks:
