At least 70 people have died in a wave of bombings and attacks in central and northern Iraq.

 

Two car bombs and a suicide attack at a market in the predominantly Shia town of Judaida al-Shat in Diyala province left at least 13 dead and 50 injured.

 

Car bombs targeting checkpoints later killed at least 24 people in the mainly Sunni city of Mosul.

 

Dozens of people were also killed in separate attacks in the cities of Kirkuk, Taji, Tikrit and Tuz Khurmato.

 

Iraq has been hit by almost daily attacks, raising fears of a return to the worst levels of sectarian violence.

 

According to UN figures, last month was the bloodiest in Iraq since June 2008, with 1,045 Iraqi civilians and security officials killed.
