The Iraqi capital, Baghdad, has seen one its deadliest days in months after two bomb attacks killed more than 64 people and injured dozens of others.
The attacks targeted animal markets in the city, which had been crowded with Iraqis out shopping or meeting friends shortly before the call to Friday prayers.
Police said the first blast, which left pools of blood amongst the twisted wreckage of stalls at Ghazil market, was the work of a female bomber. At least 46 people were killed.
A second bomb went off 20 minutes later at another market in the Jadida area of eastern Baghdad, killing at least 18 people.
Police and medical officials piled the dead and injured into wheelbarrows, cars and the back of pick-up trucks to be transported to five hospitals across the city.
Friday's death toll was Baghdad's highest since violence fell in the wake of a US troop surge in the second half of 2007.
