A roadside bomb in Baghdad and a mortar attack on Shiite pilgrims south of the capital killed five people Friday, a day before tens of thousands of people were expected in the Shiite holy city of Karbala for a religious festival. Coalition authorities on Friday announced the deaths of two soldiers - an American and a Briton.
