At least 170 people were injured

(BAGHDAD)—An attack by the Islamic State group on a crowded marketplace in Iraq’s eastern Diyala province has killed 115 people, including women and children, in one of the deadliest single attacks in the country in the past decade.

The mostly-Shiite victims were gathered to mark the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which ended Friday for Iraqi Shiites and a day earlier for Iraqi Sunni Muslims.

Police said a small truck detonated in a crowded marketplace in the town of Khan Beni Saad Friday night in what quickly turned celebrations into a scene of horror, with body parts scattered across the market. At least 170 people were injured in the attack, police officials said, speaking anonymously because they are not authorized to brief the media.

Men quickly emptied boxes of tomatoes to use them for carrying the bodies of small children, witnesses said, while adult victims lay scattered around the attack scene waiting for medical assistance.

“Khan Beni Saad has become a disaster area because of this huge explosion,” Diyala resident Sayif Ali said. “This is the first day of Eid, hundreds of people got killed, many injured, and we are still searching for more bodies.”

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement posted on Twitter accounts associated with the militant group.

By Saturday, the death toll had risen to 120, according to Muthana al Tamimi, governor of Diyala province.

But with 140 more wounded in the blast, that may go up.

The White House issued a statement Saturday condemning the attack, and reiterating its commitment "to bring an end to (ISIS') depravity."

"On behalf of the brave people of Diyala Province and all those Iraqis persecuted by (ISIS), the United States will continue to support the Government of Iraq and its security forces to degrade and ultimately destroy this terrorist organization," said National Security Council spokesman Ned Price.

Khan Bani Saad is a mostly Shiite town about 35 kilometers (21 miles) north of the Iraqi capital. -- http://edition.cnn.com/
