On 25 January 2010, three suicide car bombs exploded in quick succession in central Baghdad, Iraq. At least 41 people were killed.[1] On 27 January 2010 the Islamic State of Iraq claimed responsibility for the attack.[2]


The first explosion occurred around at 3:30 pm (1230 GMT). The second blast came just minutes later in the centre of the capital near the Green Zone, with the third close by soon after.[3]


While the attack was not yet claimed, an Iraqi government advisor immediately blamed al-Qaeda.[1]
