At least 28 people have been killed in a spate of bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

A car bomb in the northern Shaab district killed at least 10 people, and a suicide bomber struck at a nearby market, claiming more lives.

Another car bomb exploded in the Bunouk district killing at least 9 people. Scores of others were wounded in the attacks.

No group has so far said it was behind the bombings.

However, the militant Islamic State group often says it is behind such attacks.

Security forces said on Sunday they had sealed off areas of northern Baghdad and were sweeping for further bombs.
