CAIRO, July 8. /TASS/. At least 20 people have been killed and dozens injured in an explosion in Iraq, the Al Arabiya TV channel reported on Friday.
It has been reported that the attack occurred in the Balad settlement north of Baghdad. The explosion took place in a Shiite shrine. An explosive device was set off first, and then an armed group of militants attacked the people who were there.
