Officials say two bombings in Iraq's capital, Baghdad, have killed at least eight civilians.

A police officer says the deadliest attack took place in the capital's Bab al-Sharji area, where a bomb went off Sunday outside a small restaurant, killing five civilians and wounding 11. He says another bombing in the central Sibaa area killed three civilians and wounded 11.

A health official confirmed the casualty figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release the information.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the bombings. Iraq sees near-daily attacks, mainly targeting the country's Shiite majority and security forces. The attacks often are claimed by the Islamic State group, which seized about a third of the country last year.
