BAGHDAD— Officials say at least 15 people have been killed by two bombings that hit the southern city of Basra, pushing the death toll for Iraq's worst day of violence this year to nearly 100.

Police and hospital officials in the Shiite port city said dozens more were also injured. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

The Basra blasts were the latest to hit Iraq Monday. The worst attack of the day was a triple bombing in the Shiite city of Hillah that killed at least 45.
