At least six killed in Baghdad car bomb - police

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - At least six people were killed and another 21 wounded on Saturday when a car bomb exploded in Baghdad's Kadhimiya district, where thousands of Shi'ite pilgrims had gathered to mark a major religious festival, police said.

Shi'ite pilgrims were targeted on Wednesday in a wave of attacks in Baghdad and across Iraq that killed 70 people in the worst single day of violence since U.S. troops left the country in December.
