Some are calling it a Monday bombing. (That may be due to the time difference.)
AP notes 16 deaths.
If the confusion isn't due to the time difference, then what's going on is the media's feeling embarrassed about having ignored Iraq for basically a week now and they're too shamed to admit that this bombing took place yesterday.
In other news, Ali Jawad (ANADOLU AGENCY) reports:
Iraq’s official electoral commission on Sunday rejected proposals to allow the Hashd al-Shaabi, an umbrella group of pro-government Shia militias, to register itself as a political party in advance of elections slated for next year.
The decision came one day after prominent Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr declared that the country’s next government would be a "government of militias" if the Hashd al-Shaabi were allowed to field candidates in provincial council and parliamentary polls slated for 2017 and 2018 respectively.
