A series of bomb attacks in and around the Iraqi capital Baghdad has left at least 18 people dead.

The deadliest attack took place near a restaurant in the city's Palestine Street, killing eight people.

The militant Islamic State group, which seized last swathes of the country last year, often says it is behind such attacks.

Even before the rise of IS, Iraq has been wracked for years by deadly sectarian attacks.

Several other attacks were reported in the capital, some of them targeting military personnel.
