At least 29 people were killed in attacks in Iraq on Tuesday, most of them in seven car bombings in the capital, security and medical officials said.
The attacks were the latest in a surge of unrest that has left more than 4,200 people dead this year.
The evening car bombings struck various parts of Baghdad, including the centre and the northeast, killing at least 21 people, most of them civilians, and wounding 87, security and medical sources said.
Earlier in the day, a provincial official was shot dead in the capital.
