Report: Blast hits Iranian pilgrim bus in Iraq, two dead

BAGHDAD - A roadside bomb blew up near a bus carrying Iranian pilgrims in northern Baghdad on Wednesday, killing at least two people and wounding 18 others, security and hospital sources said.
The bus was attacked as the pilgrims returned from a visit to a Shi'ite Muslim shrine in the city of Samarra, 100 km (60 miles) north of the Iraqi capital.
Iraqi security forces are trying to quell a stubborn Sunni Muslim insurgency more than eight years after the US-led invasion that ousted Sunni dictator Saddam Hussein.
