More than 40 people have been killed and dozens wounded in a series of attacks in mainly Shia areas of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

In the deadliest incident, two car bombs exploded simultaneously in the western district of Dawlai, killing 14.

No-one claimed responsibility for the attacks, but they bore the hallmarks of previous operations by Islamic State.

The Sunni jihadist group has seized large swathes of Iraq and is only 20km west of Baghdad's airport.

Troops backed by Shia militiamen and US-led air strikes have stopped IS advancing on the capital, but have been unable to push it back.
