IS, which follows its own extreme version of Sunni Islam, said in an online statement that it had carried out the attack.

Quote

Days after fleeing its stronghold of Falluja, Islamic State has claimed responsibility for an attack on a shopping district in central Baghdad which killed at least 119 people, and again exposed the frailty of security efforts to protect Iraqi citizens.

A little practice and test run for ISIL/ISIS 24 hour global attacks. They tried it with 3 attacks to test and see so they can fine tune their coordinations and communications abilities for the real deal.
