At least 26 people have died and dozens wounded following two car bomb attacks in the heart of the Iraqi capital Baghdad by so-called Islamic State, reports say.

According to the BBC, The first happened just after midnight (21:00 GMT on Monday) at an ice cream shop in the Karrada district, where a crowd had broken their Ramadan fasts.

A few hours later there was a second blast near the Shuhada Bridge, about 6km (4 miles) to the north in Shawaka.
IS said both bombings had targeted "gatherings" of Shia Muslims.

The Sunni jihadist group considers them apostates subject to punishment by death.

Ramadan, which began on Saturday, is often marked by increased violence in Iraq.

Last July, at least 324 people were killed in a truck bomb attack on a shopping centre in Karrada, where families were buying new clothes for Eid al-Fitr.

IS said it was behind the bombing, the deadliest single incident in Baghdad since the US-led invasion in 2003 that toppled Saddam Hussein.

Tuesday's attacks come as Iraqi security forces continue an offensive to recapture the northern city of Mosul, the last major IS urban stronghold in the country.
