Two separate car bombs have killed 10 people in two hotels in Baghdad.

Iraqi p olice officials say a car bomb exploded in the car park of the Babil Hotel, killing six people and wounding 14 others.

About a minute later, a second car bomb blast in the car park of Cristal Hotel, formerly Sheraton, killed four people and wounded 13 others.

Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures from both attacks.

Nobody claimed responsibility, but Iraq is seeing almost daily attacks that have been frequently claimed by the Islamic State group that seized a large swath of the country during a blitz last year.
