Imam-Moussa-al-KadhimAt least 60 pilgrims martyred and nearly 320 others were wounded in a series of attacks on Shia pilgrims in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The attacks, which occurred despite heavy security, targeted Shia pilgrims heading to the shrine of Imam Moussa al-Kadhim (AS)-- the seventh of the twelve
Shia Imams.

The pilgrims came under attack as they were on their way to commemorate the anniversary of the Shia Imam's martyrdom.

According to hospital sources, 46 pilgrims are in very critical position.

Tens of thousands of people were in the area when the explosions took place. Police officials have announced that the casualties are likely to rise. No group or person has so far claimed responsibility for the attacks.
