FALLUJAH:


A roadside bomb in Iraq’s Anbar province wounded 19 Pakistani Shia pilgrims on Sunday, police and a doctor said, in the second attack against pilgrims in the Sunni province in days.


“A bus carrying Pakistani pilgrims was targeted by a roadside bomb on the highway to Baghdad from Fallujah,” Anbar police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Hassan Taher Kitab told AFP.

The attack wounded the driver of the bus and 18 passengers, including three children who were in critical condition, he said.

Assem al Hadithi, a doctor at Fallujah Hospital, confirmed the toll, and said that the pilgrims were going to visit the al Askari shrine in Samarra, north of Baghdad. AFP
