At least six people were killed and 21 others were injured in a car bomb attack in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad's Shia-dominated Kadhimiya district Sunday, security sources said.

At least 72 people were killed and 24 others were also injured in two separate incidents of violence in Baghdad Friday, police sources said.

Clashes have frequently erupted between Iraqi forces and Daesh militants since June last year, when the armed group seized the northern Mosul province and other Iraqi territories.
