Bomb attacks and what appear to be execution-style killings have claimed at least 14 lives in Iraq, police say.
Both Baghdad bomb attacks happened in mainly Shia areas
Five people died when a car bomb exploded near a restaurant in Baghdad and a bomb in a minibus left three dead in the capital's Sadr City area.
Police also found five bodies dumped in the town of Musayyib and a sixth corpse - that of an Iranian woman - in Baquba.
According to one report, a bomb also killed three US soldiers on Tuesday.
The Associated Press news agency quoted a US military statement saying the three were killed by a roadside bomb north of Baghdad.
Both of Tuesday's bomb attacks in Baghdad happened in mainly Shia Muslim areas.
The restaurant bomb went off in the Ur area, close to a Shia mosque.
Sectarian tensions between Sunni and Shia Iraqis reached a new height with the bombing of a Shia shrine in Samarra in February.
