    A series of blasts across Iraq have killed at least 35 and left another 100 people injured.

    In Baghdad, five separate blasts targeted the capital's Shia-majority neighbourhoods. The country's health minister was injured in one Baghdad explosion.

    In the north, two car bombs went off in Kirkuk. In Baquba, the capital of Diyala governorate, a suicide attack killed a police officer.
