Iraqi police: Female suicide bomber kills 46 in Baghdad

BAGHDAD (AP) - Officials fear an attack on Shiite pilgrims in Baghdad will escalate.

At least 46 people were killed and more than 100 wounded when a female suicide bomber detonated an explosives belt.

The pilgrims are making their way to the southern city of Karbala to mark a Shiite holy day.

Insurgents have routinely targeted pilgrims in Iraq.
