Death Toll Rising in Iraq

BAGHDAD (AP) - An Iraqi police official says at least 55 people
have been killed in back-to-back suicide bombings outside the most
important Shiite shrine in Baghdad.
The police officials says another 125 people have been wounded
in the blasts Friday in the northern Baghdad neighborhood of
Kazimiyah.
The official says the bombers detonated explosive belts within
minutes of each other near gates of the tomb of the prominent
Shiite saint Imam Mousa al-Kazim.
The attacks come a day after bombings killed nearly 80 people,
making it the most deadly day in Iraq this year.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not
authorized to release the information.
