Death toll for car bombs rise to 30 in Baghdad, Diyala.

At least 30 people were killed from car bombs in Baghdad and the Diyala province , AFP reported Wednesday.

Police and medical sources said the deadliest attack targeted the capital's eastern district of Baghdad al-Jadida, a predominantly Shiite area where 19 were killed and 43 wounded.

Most of the car bombs have been claimed by Daesh (ISIS), including the bomb in neighborhoods Baghdad al-Jadida and Zafaraniya, which killed four and wounded ten. The extremists said the targets were Shiite militiamen.

Another explosion hit a police and army checkpoint in Tarmiya north of Baghdad, police said.

In the eastern province of Diyala, the town of Mandali was hit by a car bomb that killed at least four. Iraqi forces in January said Diyala had been "liberated" by Daesh .
