No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but Iraqi al-Qaeda, which frequently carries out

coordinated bombings, is believed to be behind the bombing.

Bomb attacks mainly targeting Shia areas in and around Iraqi capital Baghdad also left at least nine people dead and 27 injured.

Meanwhile, casualties have also been reported in two separate explosions in the capital, where at least 14 people were killed and 34 others wounded.

On Sunday, nineteen people, including a female TV presenter, were killed in a series of terrorist attacks across Iraq.

A family of five also died after several bombs went off near their house in the Khanaqin area of Diyala Province on the same day.

In the northern province of Kirkuk, gunmen killed two people, while two others died in three explosions in the Tuz Khurmatu area of nearby Salaheddin Province.

Violence has surged across Iraq in recent months, reaching its highest level since 2008.

On October 23, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki blamed the al-Qaeda militant group for killing thousands of people in Iraq, saying that the group is “destroying the houses of citizens and killing them, and blowing up government departments.”
