35 killed in ISIS attacks in Iraq

Suicide bombings at checkpoints in Baghdad and south Iraq claimed by the so-called Islamic State militant group have killed at least 35 people and wounded dozens more, officials said this morning.


The bombings, which happened night, came as Iraqi forces battle IS in Mosul in a massive operation launched more than seven months ago to retake the country's second city from the jihadists.

In Baghdad, suicide car bombers attacked in the area of a checkpoint in the city's southern Abu Dsheer area, killing 24 people and wounding 20, Brigadier General Saad Maan told AFP.

Security forces were able to kill one of the attackers, but the second blew up his car bomb, Mr Maan said.
