Suicide bombers have killed at least 17 people and wounded more than 50 in Shia areas of the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

The so-called Islamic State group said it carried out both attacks.

A bomber killed at least 8 people and wounded 29 in the Jadida district. At least 9 died and 30 were injured in another attack in the Bayaa area.

IS has carried out a series of bombings in government-held areas this year, although the group continues to lose ground to US-backed government forces.
