Foreign Office Minister, Tobias Ellwood, said:

The attack was a horrific act of terror against innocent people in the early hours of Sunday morning in Karrada, Baghdad. I offer my sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims, and hope those injured in the attack recover quickly.

Daesh targeted families out shopping for Eid and those celebrating suhur. It violated the peace of Ramadan. The UK stands by Iraq to defeat Daesh and end this violence.
