Police in Iraq say at least 21 people have been killed and 75 wounded in a spate of bomb attacks.

The single most deadly incident was a suicide car bomb attack on a municipal headquarters in Abu Ghraib, in the western outskirts of the Iraqi capital.

Another blast killed several students travelling in a minibus in the Sadr City district of east Baghdad.

More than 70 people were killed and 200 wounded by a truck bomb in the northern city of Kirkuk on Saturday - the deadliest single bomb this year.
