Five people have been killed and 30 others injured in two bomb explosions in the Iraqi capital, police have said.
The first blast hit a mixed Shia and Sunni area in north-western Baghdad; the second bomb exploded outside a passport office, killing four people.
In other violence in the Iraqi capital, a colonel in the traffic police was shot dead on his way to work.
The attacks came a day after the police found 60 bodies in different parts of the city in just 24 hours.
More than 20 people were also killed in a series of attacks in Baghdad on Wednesday.
