BAGHDAD — Suicide bombings targeting Shiite pilgrims in and around the Iraqi capital and other violence across the country killed 36 people and wounded dozens others Thursday, officials said.

One suicide bomber set off his explosive belt near a group of pilgrims in Baghdad's southern district of Dora, killing 14 people and wounding 28, police said. Another blew himself up among pilgrims in Youssifiyah, 12 miles south of Baghdad, killing eight and wounding 28 shortly after sunset, officials said.

At night, seven people were killed and 25 were wounded in a third suicide bomber attack on Shiite pilgrims in Latifiyah town, about 20 miles south of Baghdad.
