Car Bombs kill 26 on Last Day of Iraq Pilgrimage

Two car bombs in Iraq's capital killed at least 26 people Saturday on the last day of a Shiite pilgrimage already marred by multiple bombings.

Black plumes of smoke filled the sky over Baghdad's northern Kadimiyah neighborhood, where the shrine to eighth-century Imam Moussa al-Kadhim draws hundreds of thousands of pilgrims each year.
