A car bomb blast has killed at least 12 people and wounded 50 others at a vegetable market in eastern Baghdad.

The explosion hit the mainly Shi’ite district of Jamila on Sunday.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing.

A series of attacks in the Iraqi capital and other cities in just over a week has killed dozens of people.

Several have been claimed by Islamic State, which is coming under increasing pressure from a US-backed offensive in Mosul, its last major stronghold in Iraq
