At least 33 people have been killed in Iraq in a series of bombings in the capital city of Baghdad and the holy city of Karbala.

An assailant blew up his explosives among worshipers leaving a Shia mosque in a commercial area in the center of Baghdad following midday prayers on Monday.

Iraqi officials who spoke on condition of anonymity said at least 17 people lost their lives and 28 others were injured.

Hours later, three separate car bombs went off simultaneously near government offices in the Shia holy city of Karbala, killing at least 16 people and injuring 40 others.

There has been a rise in bomb attacks by the ISIL militant group in Iraq during the last week, claiming scores of lives.

On Sunday afternoon, a bomb explosion outside a Shia Muslim mosque in western Baghdad left 17 worshipers dead and dozens wounded.

The overall security situation in Iraq has worsened over the past months after the ISIL Takfiri terrorists, of whom many are foreign militants, took control of parts of the country’s northern and western regions.

According to the United Nations, at least 1,110 people were killed in acts of violence across Iraq in September.

The ISIL terrorists have been committing heinous crimes in the captured areas, including mass executions and beheading of people. They have threatened all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and Izadi Kurds.
