In Iraq, two people were killed in a car bomb blast outside a restaurant in Mosul yesterday. Security forces said, it was the second such incident in around a week. A statement by the Iraqi military’s media centre said, one young woman and a security officer were killed, while 10 were injured.
Iraqi forces ousted the Islamic State terror group from Mosul in mid-2017, but explosions and hit-and-run attacks have continued to plague the province.
On Wednesday night, six paramilitary forces were killed and more than two dozen wounded in an ambush south of Mosul.
