At least three people have been killed and dozens of others wounded in a series of militant attacks in the holy city of Samarra in Iraq's northern Salahuddin Province.
Reports said Daesh were responsible for the deadly attacks, which took place on Thursday.
Daesh first targeted the city center with dozens of mortar rounds and rockets, damaging several buildings. They then detonated five car bombs in other parts of the city.
All schools in the city were closed following the attacks. The schools had reopened on Wednesday after 90 days of closure.
The overall security situation in Iraq has worsened over the past months as Daesh has taken control of parts of Iraq’s northern and western regions.
