A series of bombings across the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, has left more than 50 people dead and scores injured.

At least eight separate attacks took place across the city within one hour on Saturday evening, targeting mainly Shia neighbourhoods.

Dozens of people have also been killed in attacks in Mosul since Friday.

The violence in Iraq has peaked again and reached levels not seen since the heights of the sectarian conflict of the last decade.

The UN says more than 8,000 people were killed last year, the highest figure since 2007.
