Ramadan Death count: Iraq 03/07/16

(CNN) - For the third time in a week terrorists carried out a mass slaughter of civilians, with ISIS claiming responsibility for each attack.

The deadliest terror attack killed 125 people, including 25 children, Saturday evening in a busy shopping district in Baghdad.

Families had gathered there to break the Ramadan fast and watch the Euro 2016 soccer tournament in a cafe when a suicide car bomb exploded, ripping through a multi-level building that also housed stores and a gym.

At least 147 were injured.

A second bomb exploded Sunday at an outdoor market in the Shaab neighborhood of southeastern Baghdad, killing one person and wounding five others, police said.

Ramadan death toll is now at 8,582
