At least 25 individuals have been killed and dozens wounded in a string bomb attacks across Iraq, reports say. As many as 10 suicide bombers carried out the assaults, based on media reports.
The victims were said to be mostly members of the Iraqi security forces and allied militias that were Shia.
The so-called Islamic State (IS), which controls territory in northern and western Iraq, said it was behind a number of the attacks. The goals included an army checkpoint in Nasiriyah in southern Iraq in a restaurant and north Baghdad, based on AFP.
In recent months Iraqi forces, backed by Shia militias and US air strikes, have regained control over significant elements of Iraq from IS.
On Sunday, the military said it had made progress in a offensive to recapture the western city of Hit, which is under IS control for the last 18 months.
It said it had gotten the northern edge of Hit, about 140km (85 miles) from Baghdad, but was being slowed down by the existence of countless roadside bombs planted by IS.
