‘Desperate revenge’: Drone captures aftermath of deadly Baghdad bombing

Footage from a drone details the aftermath of a double bombing which killed at least 215 people in Baghdad, Iraq. A car bomb exploded outside a restaurant in the central district of Karrada. The area, which is largely Shia, was busy with shoppers when the explosion occurred. A second bomb exploded several hours later in another mainly Shia area to the north of the city. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks, while survivors lambasted the Iraqi prime minister for failing to ensure appropriate security measures.
