Once bustling with energy, the district of Karrada in central Baghdad now lies quiet and somber after 175 people were killed and hundreds were wounded in one of the worst bombings in Iraq's history.
The self-described Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, which took place while people were out celebrating the holy month of Ramadan after sundown on Saturday. As the nation mourned, rescuers continued to search for dozens of missing people.
