VIDEO: Hospital scenes following deadly market blast in Iraq

Some of the injured from a massive truck bomb in Baghdad that killed at least 67 people were being treated at a local hospital on Thursday.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for Thursday's blast, saying it targeted a gathering place of Shiites and vowed more attacks.

The truck detonated in the Jameela market in the Iraqi capital's crowded Sadr City neighbourhood shortly after dawn, according to two local police officers.

They also said that at least 152 people were wounded in the attack.

The market is the main centre for produce and food sales in the Iraqi capital.
