    Four people were killed and at least 17 were wounded in a car bomb attack on Thursday in the sprawling Sadr City district of Baghdad, Iraqi police said.

    The car was parked at a busy second-hand equipment market in the mainly Shi’ite Muslim district, said police.

    Black smoke was rising from the market place and ambulances rushed to save the wounded, said Reuters witnesses. Police cordoned off the site of the blast shortly afterwards.

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. It was the second major deadly bombing to hit Baghdad this year after a suicide attack claimed by Islamic State militants killed at least 32 people in a crowded market in January.
