The death toll from a string of bomb blasts on Wednesday targeting Shi'ite pilgrims in Baghdad has risen to 36, with at least 138 others injured.
Police say the bombing in the predominantly Sunni neighborhood of Azamiyah was the deadliest, killing 28 and wounding 68 others. The attack happened in the evening when Shi'ite pilgrims were about to cross a bridge leading to a shine.
Militants were able to strike even as security forces were on high alert in the capital. Shi'ite pilgrims from all over Iraq converged in northern Baghdad to mark the anniversary of the death of Moussa al-Kadhim, the seventh imam.
