Hundreds of people have taken to the streets in the Iraqi capital to denounce the government for failing to protect them. 

The protest occurred Thursday, one day after three car bombs in Baghdad killed at least 94 people, marking the bloodiest day in the Iraqi capital this year. More than 110 others were wounded, including civilians and security forces. 

The first bomb targeted a busy market in northeast Sadr City district. And two other suicide car bombs exploded at around the same time hours later. ISIL has claimed responsibility for the blasts.
