CCTV footage of Iraq attacks

CCTV footage has been released that is said to show two deadly bomb attacks in Iraq which killed at least 155 people and wounded more than 500 on Sunday.

The suicide bombings were the deadliest blasts to hit Iraq in two years, and claimed the lives of 28 small children.

The first part of the video purports to show the blast that targeted the Baghdad Provincial Administration - what seems to be a car appears to fly through the air.

The second part of the footage is said to show the attack on the Justice Ministry.

The footage shows the attackers' minibus circling a roundabout before a massive explosion fills the area with thick smoke.

As the smoke clears the extent of the damage can be seen with fire engines arriving on the scene to put out a burning vehicle.
