At least 27 people have been killed and dozens injured in a spate of bomb attacks across Iraq.

 

In the deadliest attack, 16 people were killed by twin blasts near a cafe at an outdoor market in the central Sadriya district of the capital, Baghdad.

 

Elsewhere, three civilians and a policeman died when a bomb exploded in a crowded street in the northern city of Mosul.

 

Sectarian violence has surged across the country in recent months.

 

The UN says that more than 6,500 civilians have died since January, the highest annual toll since 2008.
