Blasts kill three Iraqis in Kerbala, wound forty

Three explosions killed at least three people and wounded 40 in Iraq's Kerbala on Wednesday, security and health officials said, in a rare attack in one of the holiest cities for Shi'ite Muslims.

A police source said three people were killed and 40 injured in the attacks in Kerbala, 80 km (50 miles) southwest of the Iraqi capital. But other sources put the death toll as high as 12 or as low as one.

In a separate incident, gunmen killed at least seven people and wounded 10 in a robbery of gold merchants in a market in northwestern Baghdad.
