An explosion at a market in the east of Baghdad has killed 25 people and injured another 47, Iraqi news agency Shafaq reported on Monday, citing security sources.

The explosion occurred in the densely populated Sadr City district, where citizens were shopping on the eve of the Muslim holiday of Eid Al-Adha.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi has ordered the resignation of the district's head of security following the deadly blast.
