At least 40 people were killed and 74 others wounded in an ISIS attack on a Shiite mausoleum in Balad, Iraq.

The Thursday night attack follows the truck bombing of a shopping district in the capital, Baghdad, on Sunday, in which at least 292 people died.

The area was crowded with Muslims shopping to celebrate the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, in the worst attack the capital has seen in years.
