At least 38 people have been killed and more than 100 others have been injured in a twin suicide bombing in central Baghdad.

The attack targeting Tayaran Square, one of the most secure areas of the capital, was carried out by two men who detonated vests packed with explosives.

The first bomber targeted the commercial area at about 7am local time, while the second blast targeted emergency services and bystanders gathered at the scene about 10 minutes later.

CCTV footage of the first explosion shows a bright orange flash and people running for their lives through a busy market.

It was the first major attack since Iraq declared victory last month over ISIS following a brutal offensive that lasted months.
