Four car bombs killed least 13 people and wounded 62 in Shia districts of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad on Tuesday.

The BBC reports eight died when a bomb blew up close to day-labourers waiting for jobs in Sadr City. Another two were killed in a blast about 3km away minutes later.

Later, bombs exploded in Shula and Hurriya, killing three more people and wounding 25.

A series of bombings in the capital on 22 December killed at least 72 people and wounded 200 others. Dozens more have been killed since then.
