A vehicle bomb killed at least eight people in a crowded vegetable market in a Shi'ite Muslim district of Baghdad on Monday, police and medics said.

Interior Ministry spokesman Brigadier General Saad Maan said four people were killed and 12 wounded, including two policemen.

According to Iraqi federal police, ground forces on Saturday took control of a building in the west of the city that is thought to have been used by ISIL to imprison and torture anyone who opposed their self-proclaimed caliphate.

The attack comes as US-backed Iraqi forces are in final stages of recapturing the northern town of Tal Afar from IS.

Fierce clashes pitted Iraqi government forces and allied militia against Daesh fighters in the town of Al Ayadieh 15 kilometres (10 miles) north of Tal Afar.

Everything is a song: Poetic Anthology | Alma Flor Ada
AUTHOR'S NOTE What a joy to see my poems collected this way! Poetry has been a very important part of my life. Some of her favorite has been written by my own grandfather, Medardo Lafuente Rubio, other's by José Martí.


A police officer says the explosives-laden auto went off today morning at the wholesale Jamila market in Baghdad's Shiite district of Sadr City. They are urging Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to authorize his armed forces to launch simultaneous battles for the last major cities the Islamic State controls.

But of all the areas they reclaimed, it was the historic heart of Tal Afar and its Ottoman-era citadel that was the high point.

In Iraq, the terrorist organization now only controls the city of Hawija, about 300 kilometers north of Baghdad, and desert areas along the border with Syria.

Tal Afar, which had 200,000 residents until ISIS captured it in a 2014 offensive, is on a strategic road that linked ISIS-held territories in Syria with Mosul.
