A string of bomb attacks and shootings in Baghdad and north of the capital has killed at least 39 people, say security and medical officials.

In the worst single reported incident, at least 18 people were killed in Taji, a Sunni neighbourhood some 20km (12 miles) north of Baghdad.

At least nine incidents hit the capital itself and towns to the north.

Several members of the security forces were reportedly among the dead, and at least 74 people have been wounded.

Deadly car bombings hit Baghdad and the northern oil city of Kirkuk.

Dhuluiya, Saadiya, Khan Beni-Saad, Tuz Khurmatu and Dibis were also said to have suffered attacks.

They come a day after another spate of bombings, this time south of the capital, killed at least 17.
