 Five people were killed and 11 others were wounded Sunday in two separate bombings in Baghdad, police said.

The first attack took place in Baghdad's Uveyric neighborhood where an explosion killed two people and wounded seven others.

The second explosion in El-Husseini neighborhood left three people dead and four others wounded. 

No group has claimed responsibility for either attack so far, but Iraqi officials blame ISIL.

Iraq has been gripped by a security vacuum since June 2014 when ISIL militants stormed the northern province of Mosul and declared a self-styled caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria.

Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi had lifted Baghdad’s eight-year curfew on Feb. 7./
