A suicide bomber drove an explosive-laden car into a police checkpoint and blew it up in kadhimiyah district in northern Baghdad, leaving at least nine people killed and 35 others injured, Xinhua quoted a source as saying.

Few hours later, a car bomb exploded in a street in central Baghdad, killing six civilians and wounding 17 others.

The massive blast also destroyed several nearby buildings and vehicles.

Iraq has been witnessing some of its worst violence in recent years.
