Islamic State militants launched twin suicide attacks on the western and eastern outskirts of Baghdad on Sunday, killing dozens of people.

The extremists carried out a double bombing in Baghdad?s northeastern Shi?ite suburb of Sadr city, killing at least 24 people.

In a surprise assault hours earlier, three suicide bombers and gunmen riding pick up trucks stormed into Abu Ghraib, just 25 kilometers west of downtown Baghdad.

Shi?ite leader Moqtada al Sadr called upon his followers to protect Baghdad.

Residents said Baghdad?s International Zone (IZ), home to many embassies and international staff as well as Iraqi government officials, was temporarily put on high alert.
Increased numbers of Iraqi forces were also quickly deployed to Baghdad?s IZ as well as the capital?s international airport, which lies west of the city.
By early afternoon, Iraqi officials declared the fighting in Abu Ghraib was over and Baghdad residents said the city was running as normal..
