One of them was triggered by a suicide bomber, the other was a planted explosive, an Interior Ministry official told Reuters.

Islamic State (ISIS) has lost much of the northern and western territory it seized in 2014 and is now resisting an Iraqi offensive on the northern city of Mosul, the ultra-hardline group's last major stronghold in the country.

Iraqi forces faced fierce foghting from the militants in southern Mosul on Friday, while troops in the city's east and north cleared areas they had recaptured a day earlier.
