BAGHDA - The death toll from suicide attacks in a southern Iraqi city on Thursday had risen to 50 people, with more than 80 wounded, a health official and police sources said.

The director of Nassiriya's health directorate, Jasim al-Khalidi, said the city's hospital received 50 bodies and the death toll could rise due to the critical condition of some of the wounded.
