14 killed in Baghdad attacks
Six Iranian pilgrims were among 14 people killed in a spate of bombings across Baghdad on Saturday morning, security officials said.
Two near-simultaneous blasts, one at a derelict house laced with explosives and the other a car bomb, went off close to a rest house popular with Iranian religious tourists in Kadhimiyah.
Five people, including four Iranians, were killed and 18 were wounded, 11 of them pilgrims, an interior ministry official said, revising his earlier statement that all of the dead and wounded were Iranian.
And in the Shuala neighbourhood, a suicide bomber driving a vehicle packed with explosives rammed into a bus carrying Iranian religious tourists before detonating his payload.
Two Iranians were killed and 28 people were wounded, 19 of whom were Iranian.
