A series of suicide bombings in Iraq has left at least 80 people dead and another 100 injured.
In the worst attacks, suicide bombers struck two Shia mosques in the town of Khanaqin near the Iranian border, killing at least 74 people.

The bombers blew themselves up while hundreds of worshippers were attending Friday prayers, in what is being seen as an act of sectarian provocation.

Earlier, six people were killed in two suicide car bombs in Baghdad.

The attacks outside an interior ministry building in the central Jadiriya district injured at least 40 people and brought down a block of flats.
