At least 30 people were martyred on Wednesday when four bombs hit Shia pilgrims across Baghdad as

they gathered to mark the martyred anniversary of Imam Moussa al-Kadhim (as), a great-grandson of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

In the southern city of Hilla, two bombs, including one detonated by a suicide car bomber, exploded outside restaurants frequented by police, killing 22 people and wounding 38. Two more car bombs killed four people in the mainly Shia city of Balad.

On Sunday at least six people were killed when two mortar bombs struck a Baghdad square packed with Shia Muslim pilgrims.

Al-Qaeda's Iraqi affiliate terrorist organization, Islamic State of Iraq, claimed responsibility for the attack on the religious office of Shia Auqaf at Baghdad.
