Two bombings in a livestock market in northern Iraq on Friday killed eight people, police and a doctor said.
The blasts in Tuz Khurmatu, 175 kilometres (110 miles) north of Baghdad, also wounded 25 people.
Militants in Iraq often target places where crowds of people gather, including markets, cafes and mosques, in an effort to cause maximum casualties.
Friday's attacks came a day after three suicide bombers targeted Shiite pilgrims in Baghdad and south of the capital, killing at least 36 people, as militants shot dead a family of five west of the city.
