A bride and her mother are believed to be among at least eight people who have died in a series of drive-by shootings in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.

Gunmen reportedly opened fire on a car carrying the newlywed couple and family in the Dora area of the city.
Meanwhile three police officers were killed in two separate shootings - one in the Ghadeer neighbourhood, the other in the eastern Baladiyat district.
Three more officers directing traffic were then killed in nearby Mashtal.
The Iraqi defence ministry has also reported the discovery of the bodies of two policemen who were brothers east of the capital.
They were shot through the chest and head, having been taken from their home by gunmen on Thursday.
Near Latifiya, 40km (25 miles) south of the capital, two civilians are reported to have been killed by a bomb explosion that was aimed at but missed a police convoy.
No lead on diplomats
Meanwhile, the Algerian foreign ministry has said it is doing all it can to free its two diplomats kidnapped on Thursday.
But a spokesman said there had been no claim of responsibility for the kidnap and it was still unknown who was behind it.
The top Algerian diplomat in Iraq, Ali Balarousi, and a colleague, were seized outside a restaurant in the western Mansour district by attackers in two cars.
The capture follows the abduction and killing earlier this month of Egypt's ambassador-designate in Iraq, which insurgents say they carried out.
