An attack on Shia pilgrims in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, has left at least 51 people dead and more than 100 injured.

 

The attack in Adhamiyah district came as pilgrims walked to a Shia shrine and followed a day of violence elsewhere.

 

In the mainly Shia town of Balad a suicide bomber killed at least 12 people in a cafe, while in Mosul gunmen shot dead two journalists.

 

Iraq has seen a sharp rise in sectarian violence in recent months.
