Baghdad bombs: 'Tempo and violence has increased'

Four bomb blasts in Baghdad have killed more than 60 people, medics say, in the latest in a series of recent attacks in the Iraqi capital.

Three of the bombings targeted mainly Shia Muslim districts, while another hit a mixed Shia-Sunni area.

So-called Islamic State (IS) has so far said it carried out one of the attacks.

Reporting from Baghdad, BBC correspondent Jim Muir said the tempo and violence of such attacks had increased.
