Attack kills 12 in Iraqi Shia holy city

Security forces arrived quickly to the scene of the attack, which was not immediately claimed. Attacks have been rare in Karbala in recent years, but sleeper cells of the Islamic State group, which Iraq declared victory against in late 2017, continue to carry out attacks across the country.
