TEHRAN (IQNA) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi denounced a suicide attack on a Shia mosque in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Friday that killed ten people and injured many more.


Mousavi on Saturday strongly condemned the attack and symphonized with the Iraqi government and nation, especially the victims’ families.

At least ten people lost their lives and several others sustained injuries when a bomb explosion ripped through the mosque in the eastern flank of the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

A security source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Arabic-language Baghdad Today news agency that a bomber detonated his explosive belt among a group of worshippers attending the weekly Friday prayers at al-Muntadar Mosque in al-Baladiyat neighborhood.

The source added that the blast left ten people dead and 30 others injured.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet, but it bears the hallmark of such attacks carried out by the Daesh Takfiri terror group.
