The approximately 2,400 detainees from Abu Ghraib have been transferred to other detention centres in the centre and in the north of the country, according to justice minister Hassan Al-Shammari in Baghdad. It remained unclear whether the prison would be closed temporarily or permanently.

The terrorist organization Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attacks.
