Imam Hussein Mosque bombingEdit
A suicide bomber killed at least 42 people in Karbala on 14 April and injured more than 160. The attacker detonated explosives at a crowded bus station in the city close to a shrine holy to Shia Muslims, at around 09:15.
Imam Abbas Mosque bombingEdit
A car bomb exploded in front of the Shia Abbas ibn Ali shrine on 28 April. The bomb killed at least 68 people and injured about 170 in the Iraqi city of Karbala. The bomb exploded near the golden-domed mosque. Karbala is considered the second most important shrine city for the Shia. Security officials said the car bomb was parked near a cement barrier intended to keep traffic away from the Imam Abbas and Imam Hussein shrines, which draw thousands of Shiite pilgrims from Iran and other countries.
