A wave of car bombs has killed at least 52 people and left dozens injured across Iraq.

The deadliest attack on October 27 killed 14 people outside a bank in the northern city of Mosul as soldiers queued to collect their salaries.

Iraqi officials said nine blasts killed at least 30 people and injured 90 others in predominantly Shi'ite areas in and around Baghdad.

In one of the worst attacks, at least five people were killed after two car bombs exploded in a market in the Shaab neighborhood in north Baghdad.

At least eight people were killed in other attacks across the country.

More than 500 people have been killed in violence in Iraq so far this month.

Violence in Iraq has reached a level unseen since 2008, when the country was just emerging from a brutal sectarian conflict.
