(CNN) — A series of car bombs ripped through parts of Baghdad Monday evening, killing at least 21 people in the latest deadly incident in violence-torn Iraq, police said.

At least eight car bombs detonated in several Shiite Muslim neighborhoods in the Iraqi capital. In addition to those killed, 70 others were injured, police said.

“Yes, another day of coordinated attacks in the capital,” police Capt. Ali al-Lami told CNN. It wasn’t clear who was responsible, he added.

Monday’s violence comes after at least 37 people were killed and more than 200 were injured in bombings and other attacks throughout the country on Saturday and Sunday, according to police officials.
