BAGHDAD - At least nine people were killed and 53 others wounded in bombing attacks against two Shiite mosques in Iraq's southern city of Hilla on Monday, a police source said.

A suicide bomber blew himself up at Al-Wardiyah mosque in Hilla, some 100 km south of Baghdad, while a bomb exploded in the nearby Al-Galagh mosque, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the deadly attacks, but the al-Qaida front in Iraq, in most cases, were responsible for such massive attacks in the country, raising fears that the terrorist group and other militia could return to widespread violence.
