At least three people have been killed and 11 others wounded in a bomb explosion near a soccer stadium in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
The attack was carried out late on Saturday, when a car bomb went off in al-Jamea neighborhood of the Iraqi capital.
Over 40 other people were killed in bombings and shootings across the country on Saturday.
Iraq has been experiencing a surge in terrorist attacks in recent months.
According to a recent UN report, more than 2,500 Iraqis have died in violent attacks since April.
Iraqi officials say the violence is part of a foreign-backed plot to provoke sectarian strife in the country.
