At least 10 people, including four children, were killed in two separate incidents here in the central Iraqi city of Hilla. Fifteen people were also wounded in the attacks some 100 kilometres south of Baghdad. In one attack, four children were killed and six were wounded when bombs planted outside two houses exploded on Tuesday. On Monday, six people were killed and nine were wounded in an attack on a bus. Here, mourners march in a funeral procession for some of those killed. In a separate attack, an explosion on Sunday night knocked out a pipeline carrying about a quarter of Iraqi crude exports from oil fields near the city of Kirkuk. Local media said the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party was responsible for that attack.
