A wave of attacks in different Shia areas of Baghdad has killed at least 21 people and wounded dozens, Iraq officials have said.
Police chiefs said the attacks, mostly car bombings, targeted mainly small restaurants, daily labourers and bus stops in the Iraqi capital within a one-hour period on Tuesday.
The officials say about 80 people were wounded in the attacks. Medics in nearby hospitals confirmed the casualty toll.
The attacks come as the country prepares to mark a decade since the US-led invasion, which began on March 20 2003. Violence has ebbed but insurgent attacks are still frequent across Iraq.
