Ten people have been killed in and around Baghdad in a series of attacks on security forces and public places, Iraqi officials say.

Three people died and 11 were hurt after a bomb went off near a cafe just south of the capital, police said.

Another bomb blast on a commercial street in Baghdad's western Ghazaliyah area killed two people and wounded eight others.

Another bomb struck an army patrol in the western suburb of Abu Ghraib, killing two soldiers and one civilian, while two mortar shells struck a farmhouse south of Baghdad, killing a farmer and his wife.
