At least 24 people have been killed in bombings near a market in eastern Baghdad, Iraqi officials have said.

The blasts happened at the Shia district of Sadr City and were caused by suicide bombers riding motorcycles, the Reuters news agency reported.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Baghdad has been hit by many bombings recently. The so-called Islamic State (IS) – a mainly Sunni group – has previously attacked Shia targets.
