At least 35 people have been killed and 28 others sustained injuries after two massive explosions targeted a municipal government building in Iraq's Salahuddin province. The coordinated twin bomb attacks happened on Tuesday in Taji town, located approximately 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of the capital Baghdad, as a car bomb and another explosive device went off outside the government building, Xinhua news agency reported. Police cordoned off the area after the incident and launched an extensive investigation. Ambulances meanwhile evacuated the victims to nearby hospitals and medical centers. The death toll is expected to rise as the powerful blasts destroyed parts of the building. Rescue works are working at the site, removing debris and looking for more victims. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the terrorist attacks.
