40 Dead in Iraq Bombing

Terror attacks against Shi'ite pilgrims in Karbala, a grim annual occurrence in Iraq, killed at least 40 people on Friday. A car bomb exploded in a crowd of worshippers in the area for a Shi'ite holiday, Arbaeen, which sent survivors fleeing toward a second bomb, which detonated as well. Two other attacks against pilgrims this week killed at least 77 people and a separate bombing attack in Pakistan against Shi'ite Muslims killed at least 25 people on Friday.
