    126 killed including 25 children in Baghdad attacks; ISIS claims responsibility
    (CNN) For the third time in a week terrorists carried out a mass slaughter of civilians - with ISIS claiming responsibility for each attack.

    The deadliest terror attack killed 125 people, including 25 children, Saturday evening in a busy shopping district in Baghdad.
    Families had gathered there to break the Ramadan fast and watch the Euro 2016 soccer tournament in a cafe when a suicide car bomb exploded, ripping through a multi-level building that also housed stores and a gym.
    At least 147 were injured.
    A second bomb exploded Sunday at an outdoor market in the Shaab neighborhood of southeastern Baghdad, killing one person and wounding five others, police said
