Officials say separate attacks in Iraq have killed at least eight people and wounded 25.

Police say the deadliest of Tuesday's attacks took place in Mahmoudiya, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) south of Baghdad, where a parked car bomb ripped through an outdoor market, killing four civilians and wounding 11.

They say another bombing killed two civilians and wounded nine in Madain, about 14 miles (20 kilometers) southeast of Baghdad.

Police say a final bombing killed two soldiers and wounded five in Tarmiyah, 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Baghdad.

Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they weren't authorized to speak to journalists.

Iraqi forces are now battling the Islamic State group, which holds a third of the country and neighboring Syria.
