Discussion: ISIL attacks Baghdad

Last week saw multiple tragedies at the hands of extremist terrorists. Last Tuesday, 35 people died in explosions at Istanbul’s airport. And 20 hostages were killed last Friday night when Islamist militants stormed a cafe in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka. Just two days later, two powerful blasts hit the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, killing at least 213 people. ISIL has claimed responsibility for two of these attacks, and the third is also assumed to have been their work. Can the violence be contained? We discuss the issues with Yang Xiyu in Beijing, Senior Fellow at the China Institute of International Studies; Manoj Joshi, a Distinguished Fellow at the Observer Research Foundation; and Zahid Hussain, an award-winning journalist and writer from the Wilson Center.
