At least 15 people have been killed and 29 others wounded after a bomber rammed an explosive-laden motorcycle into a checkpoint in Baghdad.

The attack happened Sunday in Adhamiya district in northern Baghdad. The checkpoint was manned by US-backed neighborhood guards.

Leader of the neighborhood guards in the area Faruq Abu Omar was killed in the blast, Reuters reported.

On Saturday, a car bomb attack killed at least nine pilgrims and wounded 40 people in Baghdad’s district of Shaab.

This is the third day in a row that the Iraqi capital has been the scene of explosions. Another explosion on Friday had left four people killed.
