The Iraqi Community Center organized a vigil at Westlake Park in Seattle Wednesday, in memory of those who lost their lives in the July 2 bombing in Baghdad that killed hundreds.
Organizers expected about 100 people to come to the vigil, which fell on the first day of Eid al-Fitr. Attendees displayed Iraqi flags and lit candles in honor of the victims.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the bomb that destroyed a shopping center, which exploded in the evening as people were gathering there to shop and eat after the daily Ramadan fast. The death toll as a result of the attack has risen to more than 250, according to the BBC.
