mousqeAt least nine people have been martyred and 54 others injured in twin bombings in northern Iraq.

The bombings happened near a Shia mosque in the town of Tuz Khurmatu, 170 kilometers (100 miles) north of the capital Baghdad, on Saturday.

The first bomb exploded in a car in a busy market after prayers and the second was exploded by a bomber quickly afterwards.

In a wave of violence across Iraq on Friday, at least 13 people were killed and 25 others injured, according to security and medical officials.

More than 5,800 people have been killed so far this year as a result of a surge in militant attacks across Iraq, according to an AFP tally based on reports from security and medical officials.

No group has claimed responsibility for the rise in violence, but al-Qaeda-linked militants often carry out attacks both on Shias and Sunnis in a bid to undermine confidence in the authorities.

Iraqi officials have voiced concern over the presence of al-Qaeda militants, who have been emboldened by the ongoing militancy in neighboring Syria.
