Two separate bombings in Baghdad have left over 125 people dead and more than a hundred injured.
The majority of those deaths were from a car bomb in the city's center Karrada district. According to the BBC, it's the deadliest bombing in Iraq so far this year.
The car bomb triggered a fire that spread to several nearby buildings — damaging them badly. Some reports say it was a larger vehicle filled with explosives.
