A bomb left in a garbage can struck Shi'ites during ceremonies marking the holiday of Ashoura on Tuesday in a Kurdish city near the Iranian border, killing at least 13 people and wounding 39, police said. About an hour later, a suicide bomber blew himself up near the entrance of a Shi'ite mosque in a predominantly Shi'ite city to the south, also near the Iranian border. At least 12 people were killed and 40 wounded in that attack, police said.
