Suicide bomb attacks on Iraq pilgrims kill 10

Two suicide bombings targeting Shiite pilgrims in Baghdad killed at least 10 people and wounded dozens more on Thursday despite heavy security, Iraqi security and medical officials said.

The evening attacks struck in Mansur, west Baghdad, and Baab al-Sharji, in the centre, as worshippers prepared to commemorate the death of a revered figure in Shiite Islam.
