At least 10 car bombs in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, have killed at least 29 people in mostly Shia areas of the city, reported BBC.

More than 100 people were wounded by the blasts, police and medics said.

This year has been one of the deadliest since the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Although violence has decreased across the country since the peak of the insurgency in 2006 and 2007, bombings are still common. More than 700 people have been killed in July alone.

The bombs, hidden in parked cars, hit markets and car parks in at least eight areas of the city, police say.

The deadliest was said to have hit the eastern Shia district of Sadr City, report say.

One bomb also exploded in Mahmudiya to the south of the capital, with some casualties reported.

In the city of Kut, south-east of the capital, at least five people were killed when two car bombs blew up.

There are also reports of one car bomb going off in Basra to the south of the country.

This could be the bloodiest month in Iraq for years, says BBC Arabic's Haddad Saleh in Baghdad.
