Bombings near Baghdad have killed at least 11 and injured dozens


 Iraqi officials say separate bombings in and around Baghdad have killed at least 11 civilians and wounded 34 others.

Police say the deadliest in Sunday's attacks, all carried out with bombs and targeting commercial areas, took place in the southeastern Nahrawan district and southwestern Suwaib district, where three civilians were killed in each. A total of 15 civilians were wounded in these attacks.

No group claimed responsibility for the attack; however, Baghdad is a frequent target for ISIS attacks.

Many Iraqis were celebrating Christmas. Here are some views of Christmas in Iraq.
