Police and medics say up to 12 people have been killed and around 30 others injured in a series of bombings in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
The May 31 blasts are reported to have struck a restaurant, a police patrol, and other locations.
An Interior Ministry official said the deadliest attack took place in the north Baghdad neighborhood of Shuala, where a car bomb killed at least four people and wounded 14 others.
Bombings also struck the Al-Amriyah, Ghazaliyah, and Yarmuk neighborhoods in west Baghdad, and Dora in the south.
It was not immediately clear who was behind the blasts.
