The official said the bomber struck Monday as the pilgrims were walking through the Shiite neighborhood of Shaab. He said that about 28 people were wounded.
A hospital official also confirmed the casualties.
Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.
