Bombs Kill 1, Wound 7 in Baghdad

BAGHDAD (AP) - An Iraqi police official says two separate
roadside bombs targeting Shiite pilgrims have exploded in Baghdad, killing at least one person.

The official says the first attack took place Wednesday at about
6:15 a.m. in western Baghdad, killing one person and wounding
three. He says a second explosion in southwest Baghdad wounded four pilgrims.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not
authorized to release the information.

The bombings are the latest in a string of attacks this week against Shiite pilgrims who are walking to the holy city of Karbala
for an important religious observance.

On Monday, a female suicide bomber killed at least 54 Shiite
pilgrims in Baghdad.
