3 people have been confirmed dead and 7 others injured after a twin bombing in the Iraqi Turkmen city of Kirkuk.

Two explosive devices exploded in quick succession at a marketplace in southern Kirkuk, police officer Yawez Abdullah told Anadolu Agency.

Three policemen were among those injured in the blasts, he said.

Medic Taymor Omar, from the Kirkuk General Hospital, said a child was among those killed in the explosions.

Grocery store owner, Moustafa Mohamed, said the two explosions on Saturday morning took place in a side street leading up to the center of the market.

Kirkuk, which has been relatively more peaceful in comparison to other cities in Iraq, has seen a gradual increase in violence in the past few months.
