At least 36 people have been killed across Iraq as the authorities struggle to contain sectarian violence in which at least 165 have died this week.
The bodies of 14 Iraqi commandos were recovered in south Baghdad following a gun battle with Shia militiamen.

A car bomb in the shrine city of Karbala killed eight, as others died in attacks on a Shia family and a funeral.

A curfew has been extended in Baghdad to try to quell the violence, sparked by Wednesday's Samarra shrine bombing.

Iraq has been struggling to contain a wave of sectarian attacks since Wednesday.
