"The first bomb went off near a market close to Al-Taji area north of Baghdad, killing two and injuring eight," a source at Iraq’s Interior Ministry said.
According to the same source, who spoke anonymously due restrictions on speaking to media, a second bomb went off shortly afterward in Baghdad’s southwestern Al-Amil district, killing one and injuring seven others.
The source did not say whether victims of the blast -- for which no group has yet claimed responsibility -- were civilians or security personnel.
The Iraqi authorities typically blame such attacks on the ISIL group, which in 2014 overran vast swathes of territory in the country’s northern and western regions.
