At least 13 people have been killed and several others wounded in separate bombing attacks across Iraq.

One blast happened near an army post at the entrance to a busy market in the northern city of Mosul on Saturday, a local security official was quoted as saying by Xinhua.

Five soldiers were among the eight killed in the deadly incident, which also left 19 people injured.

In other bombings on Saturday, five more people, including a judge and an industry ministry official, were killed near Baghdad.

Iraq has experienced a spate of terrorist attacks over the past few weeks, even as US military forces are preparing for a full withdrawal later this year.

On Thursday, 10 people were killed when a bomber detonated an explosive inside a mosque in the central city of Baqouba.
