No group has claimed responsibility for a series of car bombs in the Iraqi capital Baghdad, officials said.

At least 33 people died and dozens were injured when a string of car bombs went off across the city.

The attacks come a day after the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki promised to increase security in the capital following a wave of attacks on government personnel.
