At least 93 people have been killed in three car bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital Baghdad, police and medics say.
The deadliest killed 84 people and wounded 87 in a market in the mainly Shia Muslim area of Sadr City.

Later two suicide bombers targeted police checkpoints in the northern district of Kadhimiya and in Jamia, in the west, leaving 29 dead.
