This was the immediate aftermath of a twin suicide bombing in Baghdad's Tayaran Square today (Janaury 21).

Footage shows the distressing aftermath of the explosion that has killed at least 20 and injured more than 40 others.

Filmer Mohammed Hisham - a civil engineer currently studying law - was working in the Bab al-Sharqi neighbourhood close to where the bomb detonated.

One video that circulated online showed the second bomb's detonation, instantly killing multiple people.

A military spokesperson said: "[The attack was] carried out by two suicide bombers who detonated themselves when pursued by security forces."
