Iraq attacks: Eid al-Fitr blasts kills dozens

More than 60 people are reported to have been killed in a wave of bomb attacks in Iraq, as people celebrated the Eid al-Fitr festival marking the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Eleven bombs targeted both Shia and Sunni areas of the capital, Baghdad, hitting cafes, markets and restaurants in at least nine different districts.

This Ramadan in Iraq is thought to have been one of the deadliest in years, with more than 670 people killed.
