KERBALA, Iraq - At least two blasts killed 12 people and wounded 30 more in the southern Iraqi city of Kerbala, police said on Sunday.

Kerbala, a major Shi'ite holy city 80 km (50 miles) southwest of the capital Baghdad, has often been attacked in the past by Sunni Islamist insurgents targeting Shi'ite pilgrims who flock to the city's religious sites.
