Bombings at two Shiite mosques south of Baghdad killed six people on Monday, police and a doctor said, the latest in a string of attacks targeting both Sunni and Shiite places of worship in Iraq.
One bomb exploded inside Al-Wardiyah mosque in the city of Hilla, while a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-rigged belt at Al-Graita mosque nearby, the sources said.
Both blasts, which also wounded 70 people, occurred during evening prayers.
Dozens of Sunni and Shiite mosques have been targets of such attacks in Iraq this year.
