At least 28 people were killed and 54 others injured when two bombs exploded in central Baghdad, Iraqi officials have said.

The attacks happened early on Saturday morning in al-Sinak, a busy market selling car accessories, food and clothes as well as agricultural seeds and machinery.
Details were sketchy in the immediate aftermath.
Police initially said a pair of back-to-back roadside bombs exploded. But a police official later said that first a roadside bomb exploded and then a suicide bomber detonated his device amid the crowd that had gathered.
Finally police concluded that the carnage was the work of a pair of suicide bombers.
No group has claimed responsibility for the blasts, but the Islamic State group has launched near-daily attacks in the capital in recent months.
