At least 22 people were killed in a string of car bomb attacks on Saturday timed for nightfall when shoppers take to the streets during Ramadan, security and medics said.

They said more than 70 people were wounded in the blasts: two attacks in a shopping street in the central district of Karrada, two in southern Baghdad, and another two in northern areas of the capital.
