At least 21 people, including six policemen and 12 civilians, have been killed in coordinated suicide blasts in the Iraqi capital Baghdad close to the city's Green Zone, police and medics have told Reuters.
Police said two car bombs were detonated, one of them near the justice ministry building, before a suicide car bomber blew himself up near an interior ministry office.
A second suicide car bomber then walked into the justice ministry and militants attacked the building, clashing with Iraqi security forces.
