BAGHDAD: Several roadside bombs and mortar rounds wounded 11 people in the northern Iraqi oil city of Kirkuk on Wednesday, witnesses said.
A police official said the bombs had targeted a commercial district of the city.
Security forces in Iraq have largely defeated Daesh militants, removing them from Mosul and other cities and towns.
But the hard-line Sunni militant group still carries out attacks near Kirkuk and some other parts of the country.
