Iraq police say that a pair of powerful explosions rocked downtown Baghdad killing 25 people and injuring at least 45.

The blasts went off near the Ministry of Justice and the offices of a Kurdish political party during the morning rush hour as people headed to work.

The police spoke on Sunday on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the press.
