BAGHDAD — Bombs hidden in trash cans exploded near a group of pilgrims in a town north of Baghdad, killing two people Thursday as millions of Shiites headed to ceremonies to mark a day of mourning.

Police said four blasts struck the procession in the town of Dujail, located some 50 (80 kilometers) miles north of Baghdad. Six people were also wounded in the attack, police and hospital officials said.Two more bombs were discovered and disarmed before they exploded, said a local police official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media.
