Iraqi officials say two separate bombings have targeted public places in Baghdad and near the Iraqi capital, killing 11 people.

Police officials say a suicide bomber set off his explosives vest at noon on Friday inside a small restaurant in the town of Mishada, killing six people and wounding 14. Mishada is 30 kilometers (20 miles) north of Baghdad.

A little bit later, a car bomb blast in the downtown Karrada district in Baghdad killed five people and wounded 12.

Hospital officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.

Iraq sees near-daily attacks that are often claimed by the Islamic State group, which last year seized much of the country's northern and western region.
