'At least' 10 killed in Baghdad bombings

Four separate bombings have hit areas across Baghdad, killing at least 10 people and wounding 37, police said.

Roadside bombs went off on Saturday in the areas of Sheikh Omar, Abu Ghraib, Rashid and Obaidi, killing across sectarian lines.

The deadliest explosion hit a restaurant popular with mechanics near car repair shops in the Sheikh Omar area, killing three people and wounding nine.

A medical official confirmed the casualty figures.

No one claimed responsibility for the attacks, but they bore the hallmarks of the Islamic State group.
