Suicide bomber activated his explosive device in the truck in Iraqi capital, Bagdad on March 29. As a result of the explosion, 17 people died, another 60 were injured, reports  Reuters.

He blew himself up at the checkpoint among other vehicles waiting to be searched, setting some of the cars on fire.

No group immediately claimed responsibility. But the attack occurred with Islamic State battling Iraqi forces in its last stronghold in the country in the city of Mosul. As the militants have lost territory captured in a 2014 offensive across northern and western Iraq, they have stepped up bomb attacks elsewhere.
