A wave of violence hit the Iraqi capital today. More than 80 people were killed in three separate bombings. The biggest claimed more than 60 people in a crowded market in the eastern part of the Iraqi capital. An online ISIS statement said the target there was Shia militia, but many victims were women and children. We speak with a reporter in Baghdad. We speak with Loveday Morris, Baghdad bureau chief for the Washington Post.
