    A series of car bombs has exploded across the Iraqi capital Baghdad leaving nearly 60 people dead.

    The blasts struck in seven different districts, mainly Shi'ite, as people were out shopping or having dinner in the early evening.

    The deadliest single blast took place in the northern Talbiya neighbourhood, where a car bomb in a busy street killed nine people.
