An Iraqi police official said a bomb in Baghdad has killed two pilgrims and wounded 11. The official says the two were killed as they were walking to the holy city of Karbala with other pilgrims. The official spoke Sunday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information. Shiite pilgrims walk to Karbala to mark the end of 40 days of mourning following the anniversary of the 7th century death of Imam Hussein, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad.
