A string of bomb attacks in Iraq have left at least 25 people dead and countless others wounded on the third consecutive day of deadly violence in the country.

The bombings which occurred on Thursday mostly targeted Shia Muslims.

The worst attacks took place near Dujail, north of Baghdad, where twin car bombs killed 11 pilgrims and injured more than 60 others.

Earlier in the day, a car bomb targeted a bus carrying foreign pilgrims near the holy city of Karbala, which lies some 100 kilometers southwest of the capital and hosts the holy shrine of the third Shia Imam, Hussein (PBUH).

Four people were killed in the incident and many others wounded. One person died later when two more blasts shook the city.

Elsewhere, seven people, among them several Shias, were killed in bomb explosion in the town of Qassim, some 125 kilometers south of Baghdad.

A separate roadside bomb in Baghdad’s northeast also claimed the lives of two passengers of a vehicle and injured two more.

Thursday’s bloodshed came one day after a wave of terrorist attacks killed dozens of people across Iraq, in the country’s deadliest day in more than a month.
