The death toll of the car bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital Baghdad, have increased to 93 people.

Three attacks were carried out, and at least 64 people were killed in the deadliest attack, when a car bomb went off at a market in Baghdad.

Another 87 people were wounded in that attack in the largely Shiite neighbourhood of Sadr City.

Later two suicide bombers targeted police checkpoints in the northern district of Kadhimiya and in Jamia, in the west, leaving 29 dead.

The so-called Islamic State group claimed the attacks - the worst day of violence in Baghdad so far this year.
