At least 11 people were killed and some 30 wounded.

Minutes later a bomb exploded near a Shi’ite mosque in west Baghdad, wounding at least eight people.

There were also reports of another bombing in Diyala Province that targeted Sunni worshippers on their way from a mosque after Friday prayers.

That explosion left seven people injured.
