This item appears on page 18 of the January 2018 issue.

A car bomb exploded in a market in the town of Tuz Khurmatu in northern Iraq on Nov. 21, killing at least 23 people and injuring 60 others. No group took responsibility for the attack, but Daesh (ISIL) was suspected.

Tuz Khurmatu was recently recovered from Kurdish control by the Iraqi Army. It had been controlled by Iraqi Kurdistan forces since they defeated Daesh in the region in 2014.
