At least 25 people have been killed and 75 wounded after bomb and mortar attacks near high-profile targets in Baghdad, police have said.
Officers had earlier said 10 people died in the explosions.
One blast was close enough to Iraq’s parliament in the heavily-guarded Green Zone government and diplomatic complex to shatter windows, television footage showed.
The explosion was near Iraq’s Foreign Ministry, just outside the Green Zone.
