Explosion in central Baghdad causes no casualties

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A percussion bomb went off shortly after midnight on Wednesday in the Karrada shopping district of central Baghdad, causing no casualties, police sources said.

The same area was hit in July by a suicide bombing that killed at least 324 people, claimed by the hardline Sunni group Islamic State.
