Iraqi officials say a series of small bombings in Baghdad have killed 11 civilians and wounded 35.

The attacks on Monday targeted passing vehicles and commercial areas. No one claimed responsibility, but the Islamic State group frequently targets security forces and Shiite neighborhoods in the Iraqi capital.

Iraq is waging a massive offensive aimed at driving IS out of the northern city of Mosul. The extremist group has launched recent attacks far from the front lines, in the northern city of Kirkuk and the western town of Rutba, and many fear they will also target Baghdad.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.
