At least 28 people have been killed and scores wounded in a string of bombings in a market in Iraq's capital, Baghdad, security officials have said.
Defence and interior ministry officials said that two car bombs went off in Adhamiyah on Monday.
Al Jazeera sources said 68 peoople were wounded in the blasts.
A doctor said several women and children were among the casualties.
Witnesses said the attack took place on a street lined with restaurants as a bus carrying children to a school drove past.
Adhamiyah, a Sunni neighbourhood in a mostly Shia eastern half of the city, saw fierce clashes at the height of Iraq's sectarian violence. Attacks in the area have sharply dropped over the last year.
Despite the improvement in security in large swathes of Iraq, including the capital, armed groups continue to launch near daily attacks, most of them targeting US and Iraqi security forces.
