A suicide bombing in eastern Baghdad has killed at least 13 people and wounded 30, police said.

The incident happened in the New Baghdad section of the Iraqi capital. Officials said the bomber targeted a street filled with hardware stores.

Hospital officials confirmed the casualties.

The incident comes after prime minister Haider al-Abadi’s decision to lift Iraq’s long-time curfew, beginning at midnight on Sunday.

The capital has witnessed sporadic bombings but has remained relatively secure amid an onslaught by the Islamic State militant group.
