An Iraqi official said a pair of car bombs exploded at a livestock market in the south of the country, killing five and wounding dozens.

The head of the provincial council, Jubair al-Jabouri, said 70 people were wounded in the Friday attack in Diwaniyah.

Friday’s attacks come a day after bombings in Baghdad and towns south of the Iraqi capital killed at least 22 people.
