More than 20 people were killed and about 50 injured in three bombings, including two suicide attacks, that strike Baghdad on Monday, police and medical sources said.
The strikes came as Shi’ite militias and Iraqi forces are fighting with Islamic State militants in Falluja, their stronghold only west of the capital.
Twelve people were killed and more than 20 injured when a car bomb blew up in the northern Shaab Shi’ite district of Baghdad.
Eight were killed and 21 wounded by a suicide bomber who detonated a car packed with explosives near a police station and a government building in Tarmiya, a mostly Sunni suburb north of Baghdad.
Another suicide bomber riding a bike set off his explosive belt in a popular Shi’ite district of Baghdad, Sadr City, killing three and injuring nine.
