At least 10 people were killed and 21 injured Wednesday in twin blasts in the Iraqi capital, according to a hospital authority and a local police officer.

The blasts occurred when unidentified terrorists detonated two bombs planted near a mosque used by the Shiite community in Baghdad’s Sadr City district, Lieutenant Khalil Al-Ziyab told Anadolu Agency.

An official from the nearby Al-Imam Hospital said they had received the dead and injured.

Police have stepped up security in the area, while no group has claimed responsibility.

Al-Ziyab said the attacks could have been planned by the Daesh terrorist organization.

An investigation has been launched into the attacks.
