An Iraqi police official in Baghdad said that a car bomb detonated in front of a busy clothing store, killing 14 people and injuring 30.

The explosion happened in the predominantly Shiite district of New Baghdad late on Tuesday. A hospital official corroborated the casualties. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to brief the media.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, however, the Islamic State group has been targeting Shiites across the country as it seeks to destabilize the Shiite-led government in Baghdad.
