Two bomb attacks near the Iraqi city of Karbala have killed at least 50 people and injured more than 150, officials say.


The blasts happened on two routes being used by pilgrims taking part in the Shia Muslim commemorations of Arbaeen.


Earlier, a suicide bomber killed at least three people in the central city of Baquba - the second deadly attack in the city in as many days.
