An explosive charge went off in an old market in central Baghdad on Friday morning, killing five people and wounding eight others, an Interior Ministry source said.

The explosion occurred around 9:00 a.m. (0600 GMT) in the Ghazil market, killing at least five people and wounding more than eight others, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The blast damaged dozens of shops, stalls and old buildings in the market, the source said.

The old market of Ghazil is just off bustling Jumhuriyah Street in central Baghdad, where dozens of free sellers lined with shops selling live birds, fish and animals, especially on Friday when other markets closed for the Muslim day of rest.
