At least 32 people died and another 110 were wounded Thursday in a double suicide bombing at a street market in downtown Baghdad, the worst attack of its kind in the Iraqi capital in recent years.

Interior Ministry spokesman Khaled al Muhana said in remarks to state-run Al Iraquiya television that the first attacker pretended to be sick and asked people for help, and when a group of them had gathered around him he detonated the explosive belt he was wearing.

Al Muhana said that the second suicide bomber blew himself up while other people were arriving at the scene to help the victims of the first blast.
