On Saturday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi ordered to end a curfew that has been in force in Baghdad for several years due to constant bombings and militant attacks.
The incident follows twin bombings on Baghdad restaurants on January 25, which killed 15 people and a market bombing on January 30 in which at least 44 were killed..
The curfew was imposed by Baghdad authorities in the wake of growing tensions in the city due to constant terrorist attacks in the capital.
The curfew's hours have been changing over the years, but the previous order saw it being enforced from midnight to 05:00 a.m.
According to the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), 1375 people were killed in January 2015 as a result of extremist violence in Iraq. The situation is considered to be the most dire in Baghdad, where 256 civilians were killed and over 700 were injured, United Nations representatives noted.
