BAGHDAD, Aug 26 (Reuters) - A car bomb was detonated in a mainly Shi'ite district of eastern Baghdad on Tuesday, killing eight people and wounding 20, police and medical sources said.

The bombing in the New Baghdad neighbourhood followed a series of blasts in the Iraqi capital on Monday which killed more than 20 people. Police sources said the death toll from Tuesday's attack was expected to rise. (Reporting By Kareem Raheem; Writing by Babak Dehghanpisheh; Editing by Crispian Balmer)
